This well-done documentary traces the beatific arc of Mission of Burma’s evolution from a clutch of scrappy punk outfits to one highly creative scrappy art-punk outfit to ashes to current resurrection. It’s also a close-up view of the band’s principal members. The focused intensity of guitarist Roger Miller contrasts with the more casual warmth of bassist Clint Conley, who has a highly evolved second life off the stage as a TV producer and family man, and drummer Peter Prescott, who makes the touching observation that when the current wave of Burma hubbub dies down, he’ll go back to being lonely. But what’s most exciting is the vintage and recent concert footage of the band. Even back in the early ’80s there was something about Burma’s headlong dedication to their music that made every show seem like a victory celebration. And it’s both endearing and exhilarating to see that same kind of character in their shows 20 years later — shows that actually are victory celebrations. Fans will dig this film for its completeness and insider’s view; those who’ve wondered why these guys deserve legendary status will have their questions answered.
