BAND AID REVIEWED
“Band Aid” works as a great commentary on 20-30 year olds right now. But, I don’t think it was meant to be that. The film finds a young couple working through their dying marriage. The duo turns their attention to playing music about their fights. All the while, they both get to share in making things work with their recovering sex addict drummer. The subtext of this being that all Rock is being gutted to make something bland for the masses.
Nothing ruins art like complacency and the couple slowly starts to realize this. It’s just that the typical pseudo intellectual indie movie ending gets tacked on and everyone is left shrugging. Does it matter what you saw? Does the band really matter? The answer to both is Not Really.
