About the Film
Telling harsh truths about the modern music business, this riveting and award-winning documentary gives intimate access to singer/actor Jared Leto (“Requiem for a Dream,” “Dallas Buyers Club”) and his band Thirty Seconds to Mars as they fight a relentless lawsuit with record label Virgin/EMI and write songs for their album “This Is War.” Opening up his life for the camera during months of excruciating pressures, Leto reveals the struggles his band must face over questions of art, money and integrity. A FilmBuff Presentation.
Diese Doku muss man als Musicfan einfach gesehen haben. Hier geht es nicht nur um MARS und um die Entstehung von TIW, sondern darum, wie die Künstler durch Knebelverträge mit den Plattenlabels ausgebeutet werden und sich quasi komplett "verkaufen" lassen müssen.
"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model, that makes the existing model obsolete!"
Business and Art...a marriage made in hell
A MUST-SEE for every musician and artist. It’s a subjective story about Thirty Seconds To Mars being sued for 30 million dollars and battling their label for a fair contract, well-narrated, very personal and emotional. But other musicians and former and present label executives have their say too and give an insight view on how the music industry really works and prove it to be an antiquated business model that’s not compatible with any form of art. Artifact is compelling from beginning to end and sets the bar very high for every futher music documentary.
True, honest, awesome
What a great insight view to the making of an album, a fight for the artists rights and the creativity process. Very impressive. 30 seconds to Mars are opening a new chapter here and they amaze me! 5 stars.
