In 2008, Blur, the original proprietors of the wave of British music from the 1990s, agreed to put all rumors and nonsense aside to return for a temporary reunion. As it turns out, the London natives are featured in a documentary about their ambiguous return after seven years of separation, solo recordings, and wanton brooding. The film, entitled, No Distance Left to Run, documents the reunion through a series of interviews, concert footage, and everything else to make a Blur fan wet inside.
The film, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, whose resume includes music videos for Franz Ferdinand, gives audiences a tour that includes an inside perspective of the bands rehearsals, and unreleased archived footage that leads up to their reunion show and subsequent concerts. No Distance Left to Run is due in theaters in the UK on January 19, 2010. Arts Alliance Media (AAM) is yet to announce the worldwide release of this anticipated film.
After a series of headlining performances throughout the summer, bassist Alex James announced that Blur had no plans to reunite permanently. Frontman Damon Albarn is still committed to his virtual band, Gorrillaz, which indicates a further possibility of a true reunion to be on an undetermined hold.
The appropriately titled documentary will have to do until the band realizes that its legion of fans will require more of that stuff that made some sense out of the 90s.
