The Death and Resurrection Show (7/10)

A documentary about one of my favorite bands, Killing Joke. It’s an okay overview of the band’s history as told through the lens of their goofy occult beliefs. I’m not sure a casual viewer will be able to follow this. I was most interested in the behind-the-music story of the Outside the Gate album, but this topic was given the briefest of overviews. Instead, a large portion documents the various global pursuits of Jaz Coleman as he attempts to perform rituals and slip into intra-dimensional states of being. The movie very matter-of-factly proclaims that he succeeded. I think we can assume drugs played a large part in his success.
