Screener Squad: Beastie Boys Story

Beastie Boys Story Movie Review


One of the big selling points for a lot of people who subscribed to Apple +’s new streaming service has been a single movie, a documentary, of sorts. But when it’s a filmed live stage show starring the two surviving Beastie Boys, with them telling the whole story of the band, and directed by (and often interrupted by) Spike Jonze, well, that’s gonna big a big deal for some folks. It certainly was to some of our review crew who were damn near salivating to get their eyes on this thing. Fortunately for you folks out there who aren’t part of the crazed cult of BBoys fandom, saner heads are represented as well. Check out Chris, Mike (the editor), Justin, and Bradly on this review.


DIRECTED BY: Spike Jonze

STARRING: Michael Diamond, Adam Horovitz
