Merchants of heavy sludge The Melvins evidently have a lot of stamina: not only have they been playing and releasing for many decades, they also undertook a 50 state US tour in 51 days back in 2012: wow. Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie is just that, a document of that tour shot mostly on the band’s phones for that intimate touch. An essential DVD for Melvins fans.

If you love the Melvins you will love this. It is basic and to the point. No complete songs, just a fast-paced montage with more off-stage footage than on. Whimsical, witty, heavy and well-edited. If you are looking for a concert performance film this is not that, but if you are looking for the Melvins trademark attitude presented in semi-candid video form, here you go. You've got a bunch of guys goofing off, raising some subtle curious juxtapositions about American culture out along the road. And this is definitely a "road movie".
