RUSH documentary wins Tribeca prize
« on: May 02, 2010, 04:30 PM »
The documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, about Canada's iconic rockers, has captured the audience award at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

The feature — which was one of two films that opened Toronto's Hot  Docs International Documentary Festival on April 29 — captured the  prize at a wrap party on Saturday night.

Directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn also got $25,000 US. All the other festival awards were handed out on Thursday.

The film chronicles the band's 42-year history, profiling bandmates Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.

"It was great to see Rush fans and non-fans enjoy the movie  together," said the directors in a statement released Saturday night.

Festival executive director Nancy Schafer called the film "an  intimate but energetic portrayal of one of the most prolific rock  bands."

McFadyen and Dunn are old hands in the genre of music documentary. Their previous credits include Metal: A Headbanger's Journey, Global Metal and last year's Juno-winning Iron Maiden: Flight 666.

Its showing once at a theatre across town tomorrow. The online listing said it's already sold out. Don't know if I'll see it but I really want to.

The one theater that's playing it in Tulsa sold out quickly, so they added an additional showing on Saturday night.

Glad you liked it DD 8) I'm going to put the DVD on a wish list. On another note, Rush will get a star on Hollywood's walk of fame. I hope the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame take note. :roll:

The documentary is on VHC-1 right now. I'm watching it right now. I am proud to say that CLEVELAND, OHIO put Rush on the map. (That is where I am from.) Rush has grown on me. I've started listening to some stuff I've never heard before (which I have to admit is quite a bit) and I was surprised that I like it. The documentary is REALLY interesting. I give it 5-6 paper joints.  :6paper: :6paper: :6paper: :6paper: :6paper: (The TPB version of 5 stars of course.)  :lol:

I just got around to watching this today. I thought it was one of the best rock docs/movies I'd ever seen. I also found out that I was at the first Rush concert ever in the US.

Sorry to say I don't remember a second of Rush but do have a few foggy memories about Manfred Mann and Uriah Heep. Being the opening act, Rush probably played for 20 minutes and were off in a flash.

There are a couple of years around this time that I like to call "The Lost Years". I don't remember much but I'm sure I had a great time. :D

Hey yous Rush fans there!  I finally watched this.  I'm still not a huge Rush fan, you know what with the prog rock,  but I enjoyed the movie, especially the bits about them growing up in Toronto, where I live now.  They mentioned Yorkville and Yonge Street, I live close by to those places.  If any of yous and are in TO and want a tour of the area look me up :)

They are so grounded and had great senses of humour--Have you heard Closer to the Heart done polka style? Anyway, I like the fact it was art  first for them, and not chicks and drugs and the third world war... ;)
This can't fail boys :D
