About the Movie

It was the last days of LCD Soundsystem - one of the most celebrated bands of its generation. On April 2nd, 2011, the band played its final show at Madison Square Garden. New York Magazine called the concert “a marvel of pure craft” and TIME magazine lamented “we may never dance again.” SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS documents this once-in-a-lifetime performance and also reveals an intimate portrait of band leader James Murphy as he navigates the ramifications of his decision to end LCD Soundsystem.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Shut Up" is graceful in its depiction of the performance, neither uncomfortably intimate nor shy. – Jon Caramanica, New York Times, Jul 26, 2012

Fresh: Much like the band's self-conscious synth-pop itself, Shut Up is initially satiric but ultimately disarming in its emotional resonance. – Rob Nelson, Variety, Feb 6, 2012

Fresh: Shut Up and Play the Hits manages to effectively display the power of that final concert while putting the band's leader into thoughtful cultural perspective. – Ian Buckwalter, NPR, Jul 17, 2012

Fresh: It's sometimes touching, sometimes really loud, and often both. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Sep 13, 2012

I watched this with some friends who dont really know lcd soundsystem and they were super impressed.the movie is so intresting and well put togeather

More than just a concert movie

Before seeing this film I really had no idea who LCD Soundsystem was - but I like movies, and I like music, so figured it would be good. I was pleasantly surprised. The sound was excellent (I saw the "one night only" release on July 18 in a bar with a great sound set-up). You meet the main guy and get to know him, and you see the band he's put together for the live shows - and then you get to see a live show. But it's not just like any other concert movie - rather than feeling like I was in the audience, I actually came out of this film feeling more like I was on stage with the band, playing right along with them. The crowd really loved it, and clapped and cheered at the end of each song just like they were there. Some even danced. I highly recommend watching this, especially with the sound cranked.
