    The result is a hazy, shoegazy visual tone that is both elegiac and eulogistic - that is, at once meditative and funereal.

    The best concert films achieve a marriage of sound and image that feels effortlessly harmonious, and in that regard Inni, a musical portrait of the Icelandic band Sigur Ros, leaves most of its genre in the dust.

    As a document of a live show it looks like nothing else, but Vincent Morisset's greater aspirations, attempts to define or sum up the band through the inclusion of external material, come off as muddled and oblique.

    This is the perfect film for a band that was never trying to be something other than inventive.

    Whereas 2007's well-traveled "Heima" reveled in scenic color imagery of the artists' homeland, this minimalist item strips the band down to its output, fashioning black-and-white performance footage into a uniquely spellbinding experience.

    It takes the ambiance of the band into a sort of other worldly place that it should already be at. Black and white visuals of the bands (as of current) final performance show the band at a strong point, adding a sort of mysterious art to the jonsi and company. Only true problem i had with the film to make it great was only about a portion of the concert was used. Full Review »

    Inni is special. Generally I was mesmerised by this film from start to finish. Sigur Ros has established a unique style over the years and it has evolved to a more mature version of their debut Von. After careful [re]listening to Von, I've found it to be quite an amazing and underrated album. The chosen cinematographic style, in my opinion, represents remnants of Von to haunt you visually. It definitely adds a particularly peculiar dimension to their music that I found creative in context of oeuvre of Sigur Ros. Concerning the music, it is brilliant. The small variations in some songs makes this production a special one to own. I've also found some songs to emphasise (only slightly) different instruments that highlights things that (if you know their music well) have known, heard but never realised. It is also a sign of true artists to produce such a performance live and make it sound just as good (some places even better) than their studio albums; thus a true all-rounder band. As a concluding remark, keep in mind that the film and audio version is available. In other words, if the "claustrophobia" of Inni gets its hands to cover your nose and mouth and leaves you too breathless, purchase only the audio. The audio, as mentioned above, is outstanding and different enough to own as a separate album. Full Review »

    I thought I was a fan of the band until I saw this film. It's as if a film student had a final project to make something that was not only completely visually cancerous but also painful to hear. The filmmaker has somehow found a way to make their music seem tasteless and horrific while using classic music video style elements in a chunky lackadaisical editing style resulting in the most pretentious, boring, and utterly unwatchable cinematography ever shot. I love the band. This movie is horrible. Full Review »
