Chemical Brothers: Don’t Think

Don’t Think is a feature film that documents The Chemical Brothers playing at Fuji Rock Festival, Japan in 2011. The live show was directed by Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall as part of a long term collaboration.
The film, directed by Adam Smith, captures the concert from the fan’s point-of-view, giving a powerful, immersive, magical-realist account of the show.
Produced by Black Dog Films in association with ML Studio, it had a worldwide cinema release in January 2012, and a subsequent DVD / Bluray release. It won ‘Best Live Coverage’ at the 2012 Music Video Awards and received 5 stars from Empire Magazine. The majority of the post-production work was carried out at ML Studio, including extensive special effects work.

“This visceral ride captures the hands-aloft essence of live dance; the euphoria building to such a crescendo the screen no longer acts as a barrier. The sensory overload would only increase if your popcorn were laced with MDMA; you literally feel the noise.”
Empire

“…it’s real effect is an on-the-field, you-are-there immediacy that pulls you in more than any concert documentary recorded in recent memory.”
Nate Patrin, Pitchfork
