Justice: Across the Universe

Extracts from this document...


Justice: Across the Universe Brief Introduction This one hour piece filmed & directed by Romain gavras follows around the French DJ duo Justice (which consists of Gaspard Auge & Xavier de rosnay) On their US tour, there are no special effects or fancy cameras used in this film nor is there any editing on the footage just plain raw tour footage as if it had been filmed on a hand held camera then burnt onto disc, this film was obviously run off a budget because the quality of the film is very basic, this gives that feel of classic tour film footage which goes really well with the whole of that scene of the film which is going from sold out venues like Madison square garden and then going to tiny clubs which are jam packed, it also shows the boring side of tour because most of the film consists of the two Frenchman with friend's wandering around different states and re-capping the wonders of each one from snowy Canada-where they fed a squirrel aspirin-to meeting crazed fans in L.A. ...read more.


But yet again the track was re-released in 2006 but with additional remixes by the likes of Erol Alkan and themselves. Justice's first major achievement was at the MTV Europe music awards in 2006 for 'we are your friends', even though they were not their at the Ceremony fellow DJ and label art director "So Me" was there to pick it up On behalf of them, but during mid-speech he was interrupted by Kanye West, who rushed the stage arguing that he should have won the award on live television.

The clip features a group of youths committing acts of vandalism and harassment, wearing jackets with the Justice cross on the back. Accused in some quarters of racism for its stereotypical act of youths of black decent from Paris' socially deprived council estates, others saw the video as a critique of their portrayal in the French media. Speaking in an interview with The Quietus website, Aug� said, "We were expecting some fuss obviously, but definitely not on those topics... If people see racism in the video, it's definitely because they might have a problem with racism; because they only see black people beating up white people, which is not what happens." Conclusion This Hour long 'master piece' as it has been described by others is full of electronic music all over the US with alcohol infused fans screaming their love for justice and a lot more other quirky scenes which would bring a smile or confusion over a fans face, but I would recommend for any electro music fan or definitely any Justice fan to buy it because personally it was the best hour and four minutes I have spent watching a screen! ...read more.
