SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, in the North East of England. Starring Tom, Kelly, David, Daniel, 70,000 records and the good people of Teesside. A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, obsession and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives. High Fidelity with a Northern Accent. Got any Makina ?Written by
Very funny and engaging documentary that offers us glimpses into the lives of the staff and patrons of an independent North Eastern record store.They are characters most people would recognise and a lot of wry humour is wrung from their particularly male obsession.But as well as a nice character study the film is also a look at how important such shops are in their community,showing how a physical space is important for people to congregate,socialise,educate themselves or even escape to.Thankfully the film never polemiscise ,prefering to just observe. Occasionally i felt the subjects were intruded on a little to much,perhaps edits could have come a little sooner but "Sound it out" remains for the most part a worthwhile ,thought provoking,well observed entertaining documentary.
