4 stars out of 5 -- "Low's skeletal, hymnal songs are the frame, but there's a very human story here..."
For the uninitiated, indie music and the Mormon faith might seem incompatible. But Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker--the husband-and-wife team in the band Low--demonstrate that religion and rock can make a fine marriage in this documentary. In YOU MAY NEED A MURDERER, the filmmakers follow the slowcore pioneers in both their professional and personal lives.
Description by Alternative Distribution Alliance:
In almost fifteen years, Low became an institution on the indie and alternative scenes. Famous for their quiet, beautiful slow songs, and fascinating harmonies, as well as their religious background (core members Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker are Mormons). For this documentary, a film crew followed Alan and Mimi on tour, at home in Duluth, MN, in their church community, and as parents. It's more than an on-the-road or behind-the-scenes video. It shows Sparhawk as the ambivalent main character in an intriguing movie about religion, violence, conscience, and madness. It can also be seen as a touching love story.
