Color Me Obsessed: A Film About The Replacements 2011
Director Gorman Bechard brings an extraordinary vision to a unique filmmaking challenge with COLOR ME OBSESSED, the first documentary on the influential '80s indie-rock band, The Replacements. "I wanted to give the band god-like treatment," he explains, "but I didn't want to make a VH-1 where-are-they-now style documentary." Combining the band's mystique with the passion of their fans, Bechard made a music documentary with no music and not one single image of the band. "People believe in god without ever seeing or hearing him or her," the director says. "I'd like viewers to believe in the band that way." Rockers (Colin Meloy, Craig Finn, Tommy Ramone, Grant Hart, Goo Goo Dolls), journalists (Robert Christgau, Legs McNeil, Ira Robbins), fans both famous (Tom Arnold, Dave Foley, George Wendt) and not, Bechard interviews over 135 believers, delivering the potentially true story of The Replacements, America's last best band. The most influential band you've probably never heard of. Despite containing not one note of music, COLOR ME OBSESSED is a doc that really rocks!
