Time Out says
Alex Young. USA, 2014. Original language, Spanish subtitles. 107'.
How's this for a pair of twins? The group R.E.M. and the channel MTV were born at the same time, and this film traces their successful birth, beardless adolescence and triumphant maturity. Unplugged, videos, appearances at the MTV Awards, outtakes, concerts and a mountain of interviews build a shared history from 1980 to 2011.
