  • Summary: Kiefer Sutherland takes his indie record label act, Rocco DeLuca & the Burden on their first international tour. From Los Angeles, London, Dublin, Reykjavik and Berlin, this rockumentary film chronicles a highly personal journey of a rock band & their less than qualified road manager (Sutherland) and shows the hopes, successes and disappointments of a band trying to get their music to their audience. Manu Boyer’s film takes us on a rock tour that becomes much more than the sum of its parts, it is honest and rich, with in-depth life sketches. (First Independent Pictures) Collapse

    Deftly mixing alternating tracks of playful rowdiness, thoughtful introspection, ferociously slamming rock and not-so-quiet desperation, helmer Manu Boyer scores impressively with I Trust You to Kill Me, arguably the best rockumentary since "Some Kind of Monster."

    Even when he looks like a complete dolt, Sutherland still comes off sympathetically, as a cool guy.

    Who knew the rock 'n' roll life could be so mild?

    Perhaps you are wondering why a little-known band called Rocco DeLuca and the Burden merits a glossy feature-length documentary of its whirlwind European tour. After watching Manu Boyer's film, you may still wonder.

    Too bad nearly half the film is about DeLuca, who has an irritating Freddie Mercury wail and is both obnoxious ("We'll play downstairs after midnight or we won't play at all") and moronic.

    A rather standard out-on-the-road rock doc except for one unique and under-explored twist: The "24" star, after signing the band to his label, impulsively decided to accompany them on this barnstorming adventure as their tour manager.
  7. Doesn't accomplish its objective.

    Sutherland's appearance is enough for me to enjoy the rockumentary.
