Björk ‎– Inside Björk

   (0 reviews)

A Documentary About Iceberg Lagoon, Reykjavik Childhood, Punk And Surrealism, Early Bands, Song Stories And Sonic Experiments, Images, Beats, Nature, Classical Influences, Musicals, Microbeats And Arctic Passion Amongst Other Things...

This documentary follows the career of innovative singer/songwriter Björk. The film looks at her early musical career with local Icelandic bands, her acclaimed stint in the Sugarcubes, and her massive success as a free-spirited solo artist. Interviews with friends and contemporaries such as Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Missy Elliott, and many others round out this in-depth look at the utterly unique songstress.

Inside Björk also features interviews with Sean Penn, Lars von Trier, Thom Yorke, Beck, RZA, Elton John, Missy Elliott, the late Alexander McQueen and more on their thoughts of Björk and her impact on music and culture. The documentary coincided with the release of the Greatest Hits album, and had previously been seen on some television networks at the end of 2002. It was commissioned by One Little Indian to make up for the fact that Björk was beginning to do fewer interviews than had been previous. Two small new live performances are included in the documentary, "Generous Palmstroke" performed with Zeena Parkins and an organ version of "The Anchor Song" played in an Icelandic church.
