best part of that whole argument with the art girl and the guy is that, at the start of the Rose Bowl gig near the end the 2 of them look very cosy, she's got his arm round him and they're dancing together! it's cute!

Depeche crosses all boundaries.

One of my favourite moments in 101 is the hysterical screaming chick during 'Blasphemous Rumours'. Man, she's a bit intense isn't she!? I wonder what she thinks whenever she watches herself on 101 these days.

The whole series of contrasts over who is supposed to be a 'typical' Depeche fan as set against anyone else is a hilarious/telling subtext of the entire film. The truck stop denizens, the Latino Guns'n'Roses fans...

Didn't that guy meet Axl Rose at the premiere of 101? I remember hearing some hilarious story about it.

If I had been voting in this poll at the time it would have been a very very tough choice between 101 and Devotional. Touring The Angel is my favourite of the post-Wilder tourfilms (Great setlist, love the stage design), whereas I've always found One Night In Paris a bit on the dull side, not just because the setlist is (at it obviously would be) a bit 'Exciter'-heavy (an album I've never really liked), but the way it's filmed makes the shows seem really bland. I went to one of the 'Exciter' shows in the UK and my dad went to the shows in Paris, and both of us felt the same way about the film.

To put it simply, One Night In Paris doesn't make me want to BE there. Whereas when I watch 101, Devotional or Touring The Angel, they make me kick myself that I wasn't able to attend.

3 weeks pass...

Showed 101 for a friend last night who had never seen it and has been a Depeche fan for years. I still can't believe the amount of people who you'd think would have seen it by now but still haven't LIKE DJP AND JJJ FOR INSTANCE but anyway. Anyway, still fantastic, will never not be.
