The Cure

Lost in the Labyrinth DVD

Review by Gary Hill

Let's just get it out right upfront, I've always liked The Cure, but never been what you'd call a fanatic. So, this biography DVD is something to which I've really looked forward. I like this whole series and when it's a band I appreciate, but know little about, it's a bonus. In many ways this could almost be said to be a biography of Robert Smith. I have always known that Smith was the main man in this outfit, but from watching this video that fact is truly driven home. While this is an unauthorized biography, they did manage to get a lot of great interview footage from members of the band and all those around them. Like the rest of the series, though, it's a shame that you can't hear the music of The Cure on the segues between segments. Still, this is a fascinating look at a very unique and unusual act. It's worth having for the Cure fanatic and the more casual fan, as well. The DVD also includes a trivia quiz and discography.
