Depeche Mode

Rewind: Depeche Mode: 30 Years at the Edge

Review by Gary Hill

Depeche Mode were really always a special band. Even back in the day when I refused to like the 1980s music scene Depeche Mode were part of, I still liked them. That’s how talented they were. So, this documentary is certainly of interest to me. It’s an unauthorized documentary, and for that reason, the scope and inclusion of real music and footage is extremely limited. All that said, though, there is some cool stuff here. It’s doubtful any hardcore Depeche Mode fans will learn anything they didn’t already know, but it’s quite possible they will see some bits they’ve never seen before. The more casual fan will probably appreciate it even more. Is it a perfect or even great documentary? No. It is pretty interesting, though and well worth checking out.
