    This glossy movie from Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz about the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas feels the burden of promotional urges and lacks a sense of immersion in a multistage event attended by hundreds of thousands.

    Under the Electric Sky manages to be amusing even while it’s annoying you.

    Concert sequences are engaging, though I was disappointed not to see any animated flourishes.

    There’s no shortage of eye candy on display, with acrobats, dancers, fireworks and carnival rides providing a colorful backdrop to the fairly formulaic story arc. The lack of specific background on the event's origins and history is somewhat frustrating, however, since the 85-minute runtime could certainly accommodate further exploration.

    The movie presents the best possible version of the event without the massive lines, drugs, drunkenness and hellish traffic.

    Under the Electric Sky shows you the transformative, incredibly positive power of dance music, but in terms of a movie, it falls a little flat.

    Under the Electric Sky is a bedazzled (if not quite dazzling) 3D documentary.

    The pic provides lots of sexy, neon-hued eye-candy but not many images of deeper resonance.

    Just as queerness is conspicuous by its absence, so is any serious consideration of the drug use that often pairs with extended tastings of EDM.
