The Police Everyone Stares: The Police Inside Out (Universal) Police drummer Stewart Copeland carried a Super8 camera with him from the band’s inception and captured some 50 hours of footage to make a revealing fly on the wall film, which captures the rise, rise and eventual dissolution of the globe-straddling band.
Joy Division Under Review (Nova) Feature-length documentary which offers a chance to see some rare and inevitably grainy, live footage, but minimal contribution from the remaining band members.
Tom Waits Under Review (Nova) Along the lines of the Joy Division film, this is an ‘independent critical analysis’ of Waits’ work from 1971-1982.
Depeche Mode Touring the Angel - Live in Milan (Mute) A revitalised Gahan and Gore show off their hits and battle scars over three gloriously widescreen discs.
Jeff Tweedy Sunken Treasure (Nonesuch) A revealing documentary about the grizzled Wilco frontman who leaves the rest of his band at home to tour on his lonesome up the Pacific Northwest.
Pixies loudQUIETloud (Plexi Film UK) Understated but telling account of the Pixies reunion tour from 2004.
