This film incited a full range of emotions in me. I went from school girl giddy at seeing my favorite band behind the scenes, being themselves and working their magic, to full blown anger at EMI for dragging them through the mud, and all in between. I pumped my fists to the sky when EMI finally caved, and dropped my jaw when I saw (**spoiler alert**) that they have yet to receive a dime for albums sold.
I've followed 30 Seconds to Mars from the beginning, seen them live multiple times, and I say now with the same conviction I had way back when they started- these are 3 of the hardest working, most loyal, and most talented guys I've ever come across. The struggles with the label were like a beaurocratic fist up the ass, and none of the hard work or talent mattered to EMI when money and contracts were on the table. The music business is a faceless machine powered by greed. All that being said, this is a beautiful film, and Jared has an amazing eye for this type of thing. Whether you are a fan of this band or not, it will make you look at things differently. I highly recommend giving it a watch.
