The two films featuring Green Day that premiered at SXSW are rooted in the same concept: Chronicle the creative process.
"¡Cuatro!," a 70-minute film that the band and their manager Pat Magnarella had a hand in producing, is electrifying in the way it is shot and edited, illuminating in the details of how Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Col approached the 60-odd songs they had in contention for albums that would become "¡Uno!," "¡Dos!" and "¡Tré!"
It is a very good "making of" documentary, a fine companion to the three albums.
How cool is this??

In his recent Rolling Stone interview about addiction, meltdown and hard-won recovery, Green Day singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong recalled a show in Austin, Texas in the late Nineties when he decided to stop worrying about his punk credibility and finally act like a rock & roll star onstage: to give his band and songs the showmanship they deserved in concert. It took liquid courage, he admitted – a step with distant, ultimately disastrous consequences.

There was really only conclusion to be made after watching Green Day perform on Friday night:
Vocalist-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, whose substance abuse problems landed him in rehab and momentarily derailed his East Bay punk-pop band's career, was in herculean form during Green Day's showcase at the South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival.
His vocals were on spot. His guitar licks were sensational. And, most significant, he was back to being the charismatic, playful and exuberant frontman who millions of fans fell in love with in the first place.
It couldn't have come at
