About the Movie

In the history of modern American music there are few bands like the Pixies. Theirs was an unparalleled musical path, influencing countless others despite modest financial success. In 1992, their chief songwriter and vocalist Black Francis announced his intention to quit via a blunt facsimile. That, it seemed, was that. But to the amazement of everyone, the Pixies reunited in 2004. loudQUIETloud is the story of this unforeseen plot twist -- a deeply compelling portrait of four band members and their difficult, tense and ultimately triumphant return. From the first rehearsal to the final bow nearly one year later, the press-shy Pixies granted unprecedented access to award-winning directors Steven Cantor and Matthew Galkin. The result is an insider's perspective on the Pixies, their relationships with family, fans and each other, and the combustible dynamic when the four members come together on stage.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Boring people who made extraordinary music, the Pixies are inexplicable. In attempting to demystify them, this backstage pass to their 2004 reunion tour achieves the opposite. – Nathan Lee, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Pic is targeted at the already initiated, but directors Steve Cantor and Matthew Galkin deftly resolve one often glaring problem with tribute documentaries -- making those who might not care do so. – John Anderson, Variety, Feb 23, 2012

Fresh: Filmmakers Steven Cantor and Matthew Galkin catch distressing and poignant moments on the tour that, if written into a fiction film, would seem too scripted to be true. – Lou Carlozo, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: For fans of the seminal alt-rock quartet, the Pixies' reunion was momentous, but in the solid behind-the-scenes documentary loudQuietloud, the band comes across as considerably more muted in its enthusiasm. – Scott Tobias, AV Club, Jun 24, 2010
