Shut Up and Play the Hits

/ /
LCD Soundsystem on the big screen? Yes please!

SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS tells the story of LCD Soundsystem and their final show in Madison Square Garden. Narrated by Chuck Klosterman interviewing the band's front man James Murphy, the film shows the preparations for the concert, the concert itself and the next day, in which Murphy has to face the ramifications of his decision. As much an intimate portrait of Murphy as a live show documentary, SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is sure to please any music enthusiast.

DYLAN SOUTHERN and WILL LOVELACE met while attending film school in Liverpool. After graduation, they moved into music videos and commercials. Their first documentary together was Grammy nominee NO DISTANCE LEFT TO RUN (2010), a film about British band Blur. SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is their second film.
