The concert movie is a strange and ambitious thing, marrying live music to moving pictures and permanently fixing a fleeting, one-night-only live event for the masses so that you can recreate it alone, on tape, whenever you like.

Other than Micheal Fassbender in “Shame,” it’s an unparalleled and astonishing turn into darkness (if both those two don’t get nominated, burn the Academy down).
