"Supremely Bold"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This film has been a long time coming and the end result was well worth it.This film is essentially an honest biographical look at the chills where We are taken behind the scenes of each phase of the band and recording of certain albums and tours along the way we see the highs lows and martins private hell as in regards to his health.The film filled in gaps of my knowledge of the band Very raw, honest, emotionally confrontational and down to earth and brutally honest and a sobering look and reminder of our own mortality and the things and legacy we leave behind this film is the best way to tell the story of The Chills honestly this is a film the fans needed Supremely Bold

Martin Phillipps has been called a lyrical genius and his band The Chills remain one of New Zealand’s most iconic bands. This intimate portrait bears witness as the eccentric Phillipps battles the jarring reality of his own mortality. With a startling sense of humour even in the blackest moments, Martin reconciles a lifetime’s worth of curious collections, looks back on a catalogue of heavenly pop hits and reclaims his place in the iconic Flying Nun and Dunedin Sound.
