    Default Sigur Ros - Heima

    i saw Heima eariler in the day at the Arclight. It was so great. Pardon me while i post the description of the film from the AFI website:

    Sigur Ros’s thank you letter to their motherland, HEIMA, will carry you on an ethereal cloud of profoundly gorgeous compositions as you float over the breathtaking Icelandic countryside—a landscape as hypnotic and serenely beautiful as their music.

    In the summer of 2006, Sigur Rós –who have inspired legions of devoted fans and become their homeland’s biggest musical export since Bjork –returned home to play a series of free, unannounced concerts for the people of Iceland. Dean de Blois’s documentary captures their reflections about the tour, their band, and being home. Beautifully shot at unique concert venues —an abandoned fish factory, a protest camp at a controversial dam, a small town coffee shop—the film’s varied backdrops reflect the bands dense spiritual sound. The journey becomes the quintessential alt-music experience.

    Dean de Blois’s film is like going to church and kneeling at the altar of sheer musical brilliance. If your eyes don’t get misty, you are not human.

    - Natalie McMenemy

    Sounds so excellent. Beautiful looking film; and a Sigur Ros movie for people who love them, and i suspect, never heard of them.

    There will be another screening at the Arclight Friday night (11/09) at 10PM. The dvd comes out the 20th. i would definitely go to the screening (which i think i will again.)

    I'm ridiculously excited to see this. I'd kill to see it on a big screen but I don't think there's screenings going on here in Montreal.
    QUALITY!

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    According to the official website and amazon, the deluxe edition comes out on tuesday and the regular in two weeks.

    for north american fans, the regular edition of “heima” has been pushed back to december the 4th. the special edition will be going on sale as per normal on november the 20th. please note that the special edition has the same dvds as the regular edition but has deluxe packaging and a 116 page photo book.
    It's weird how buy.com says both come out on Tuesday. But I'm worried because my pre-order hasn't shipped yet. I'm used to pre-orders shipping the weekend before street date. Of course, I've probably pre-ordered only a handful of dvd's since 2000. Anyone old enough to remember the good old days of getting new dvd's online dirt cheap with coupons? I preordered Fight Club for under $20 (MSRP was $40) and got it before street date. Score!

    The deluxe edition features an interview with the band
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    I posted this on the other Sigur Ros thread in the Rumor Mill, but I figured this thread is more appropriate.




    All of Heima is now on youtube

    i saw it at the ArcLight, and Sigur Ros played a couple of songs as well. It was dope.
