★★★★ review by Ken Rudolph on Letterboxd
There is no rule that says that a documentary can't be entertaining, that it has to be serious and constructive. I'm about 50 years too old to have experienced the "rave" generation in person. Monterrey Pop and Woodstock were more my era. But I'm not too old to vicariously enjoy it when 300,000 ravers got together for the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas...three nights in June, 2013. This documentary follows several participants as they travel to and experience the carnival; and their enthusiasm and the electronic music are infectious.
The film leaves no doubt that this is a hugely commercialized event, and the film designed to sell the brand. Still, the sheer coverage and production values of the film making are astounding. In all the mass of writhing humanity, the film does manage to mostly narrow the focus to its interesting cast of crazed and committed ravers (a surprisingly white-bread bunch). Amazingly enough I had never heard of EDC before this film, that's how out of it I am these days. Still, the film was so fine that I just about felt that I was there...I laughed, I cried, I grooved to the sounds. I guess I'm not too old to rave after all.
