One of the best homegrown films at last fall’s Milwaukee Film Festival was High Frequency Media’s slow-paced Juniper Tar rockumentary/road movie Points Of Interest. The film stood out from others in the genre, focusing as much on the bystanders the band passed on its tour as on the musicians themselves. High Frequency’s newest project, the not-quite-feature-length I Like Talking About Music: A Conversation With The Hussy & The Midwest Beat, is an even stranger breed of rock doc.
Though directors Jon Salimes and Anthony Lopez are practiced hands at shooting performances—and have covered shows by both The Hussy and The Midwest Beat—I Like Talking About Music is their anti-concert film. The only music in the film is a tune-up and an impromptu serenade played from a couch. The major set pieces, meanwhile, are a fishing trip and a sift through a record store’s inventory. A cinematic approximation of dicking around with some likable musicians, the movie is more Dazed And Confused than Shine A Light.
