X Japan的死與生

  • Dir: 史提芬啟傑 

  • 美國/英國/日本, 2016, 93分鐘

X Japan開創「視覺系」,融合古典樂和重金屬,以魂斷式演出和妖魔妝服把搖滾進化至表演藝術,衝擊日本保守社會,影響東西方樂壇至今。1982年成團以來,從地下異端者反攻主流,幾年後站上巔峰,進軍美國鎩羽而歸;1997年因主音Toshi遭邪教洗腦而沉痛解散、幾個月後結他手hide離奇死亡,舉國震驚。十年後X Japan 復活,Luna Sea的Sugizo加入,再有前成員Taiji自殺,經歷超過偉大樂隊能承受的極限。狂呼搖滾不死,但天下盡是說散就散的band,美哉少年成了周身病痛的叔父輩,堅持唱得一場得一場。Yoshiki追憶往事,幾度落淚,又憧憬新一輪的世界巡迴,他親自為紀錄片配樂,淒美得像一部黑暗史,也是反死亡的新生書。
