Plot
The story of what it was like for four friends in a band to find their lives turned upside down and then what it took to split and reform.

Blur: No Distance Left To Run
Although ostensibly the tale of Blur’s rise, fall and rebirth, this is the story of four friends who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances. No Distance follows their reformation after a seven-year hiatus, trailing them from rehearsals to back into the public eye.

The live footage is stunning, but most compelling are the frank interviews and admission that even the brightest musicians can stumble over every rock ’n’ roll cliché there is: heroin, alcoholism, stunted by their own success... They came back though, reforming not for the cash, but because they missed their best friends.


Verdict
Unexpectedly revealing interviews and some stunning live footage make this one of the better band behind-the-scenes.
