LCD Soundsystem: Shut Up and Play the Hits

Shut Up and Play the Hits is a movie about one night that’s only coming out for one night—a 24-hour window to watch a documentary on the last show ever by James Murphy and his band LCD Soundsystem, whose music didn’t so much define a generation as mirror it exactly. Retro synths? Loft disco beats? Bottomless record collections and hearts of gold? Mr. Narrator, this was Bob Dylan to a lot of people, and when Murphy and LCD flipped the off switch last year, they made sure the cameras were there to show just how happy the ending finally was. Few people have seen this so-far-festival-only film, but if it’s anything like Murphy himself, it’ll be sweet, thoughtful, self-effacing and bristling with hits, yes—but with a couple deep cuts, too.
