FREAKSCENE: THE STORY OF DINOSAUR JR. is an homage to one of the most influential bands on the American East Coast, which inspired the rock scene — including Nirvana and Sonic Youth — in the 1990s. Their style and unmistakable sound, later referred as “Grunge”, laid the foundation for the entire “Slacker” culture of Generation X. It is also the story of the eloquent and eccentric guitarist and bandleader J. Mascis, the bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph and a band that insanely does not talk to each other. Communication takes place exclusively through music. Philipp Reichenheim nevertheless manages to make the closed and shy icons speak. An emotional, tragically funny and sometimes noisy rollercoaster ride by a dysfunctional family — Dinosaur Jr. Through several decades, the film offers rare insights into the crazy everyday life of the band and illuminates the inner workings of a cult band from its beginnings in the 1980s and 90s to the present day.
