Color Me Obsessed: A Film About The Replacements -- Are you a believer? Are you one of the people who knows? Well you can trust that after watching Color Me Obsessed you will join the ranks of the privileged few.
With COLOR ME OBSESSED, the first documentary on the influential 80s indie rock band, The Replacements, director Gorman Bechard brings an extraordinary vision to a unique filmmaking challenge. I wanted to give The Replacements god-like treatment, he explains, but I didn t want to make a VH-1 Where Are They Now? style documentary. Combining the mystique of the band with the passion of their fans, Bechard made a music documentary with no music and not one single image of the band. People believe in god without ever seeing or hearing him or her, the director says. I m going to make viewers believe in The Replacements in much the same way.
From rock stars Colin Meloy (the Decemberists) and John Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls) to music journalists Robert Christgau and Legs McNeil, COLOR ME OBSESSED features over 135 interviews with true-believers. From names you ll recognize (Tom Arnold, George Wendt, Dave Foley and Tommy Ramone) to everyday fans, COLOR ME OBSESSED presents the potentially true story of The Replacements, America s last best band, the most influential band you've probably never heard of. And despite containing not one note of music, it s a doc that really rocks.

In 1974, the New York City music scene was shocked into consciousness by the violently new and raw sound of a band of misfits from Queens called the Ramones. Playing in a seedy Bowery bar to a small group of fellow struggling musicians, the band struck a chord of disharmony that rocked the foundation of the mid-seventies music scene. This quartet of unlikely rock stars traveled across the country and around the world connecting with the disenfranchised everywhere, while sparking a movement that would resonate with two generations of outcasts across the globe. Although the band never reached the Billboard charts, they managed to endure in face of fleeting success and crushing interpersonal conflicts by maintaining a rigorous touring schedule for twenty-two years. Tracing the history of the band, from its unlikely origins, through its star-crossed career, bitter demise and the sad fates of Joey and Dee Dee, End of the Century is a vibrant, candid document of one of the most influential groups in the history of rock.
