Yesterday, we ran through fifteen movies that we're dying to see at this year's SXSW, but the Austin, Texas festival doesn't just have world premieres: there's also a selection of films that have played film fests elsewhere in the world over the last months, from Venice and Toronto to Sundance and Berlin.

Less of a documentary and more of a document, "Shut Up And Play The Hits" captures the week before, the day after and the very occasion of LCD Soundsystem’s Madison Square Garden farewell concert on April 2, 2011.

We can't remember the last time a concert movie caused quite as much excitement as "Shut Up And Play The Hits." But given that the film is a document of the final gig of James Murphy's LCD Soundsystem, one of the most acclaimed bands of the last decade, it's easy to understand. Despite reaching a point where they were more successful than ever before, the dance-punk-glam-rock group, Murphy decided to call it a day while still on top, breaking up the band after two sold-out gigs at Madison Square Garden last April.

If it's a funeral...let's have the best funeral ever. So goes the tagline for the LCD Soundsystem documentary "Shut Up And Play The Hits" and it looks like it's going to be the most ass-shaking goodbye to a band we've seen in a while.

It's beginning to look like this year's Sundance Film Festival will be very James Murphy-heavy. It was already announced that the LCD Soundsystem frontman/all around super-genius will appear in the comedy called, er, "The Comedy," with Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, of "Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" fame/infamy. And today (via Pitchfork) it was revealed that a full-on LCD Soundsystem concert movie, awesomely titled "Shut Up And Play The Hits" and centered around the band's final show at Madison Square Garden will also debut at Sundance as part of the out-of-competition "Spotlight" series. Somehow not being able to attend that final concert (despite all our scheming) doesn't seem like so much of a letdown anymore.
