Ashes of American Flags

This premiered in Chicago tonight and I was able to make the second showing. Wilco is the best. The film was great. Brendan Canty (Fugazi) is one of the filmmakers and was in attendance to answer some questions afterwards.

Maybe it was just me, but I really wanted to clap and yell at the end of some of the songs. . . I felt like I was watching the band live. If you like Wilco, you hopefully already know that they always put on a satisfying show. This is a great document of 10 days on tour, stopping in some historical venues. Long live Wilco.

By they way, the film is worth watching to see the entirety of that bridge shot alone.
