The only problem with the doc is its focus on Derrick May and then the final scene revelation that he has been accused of sexual assault and dropped from gigs, but denies the accusations and has not been charged. It left me breathless - like, wait, what, that's just what we're getting - a line of text? and no way of now working out what this means for his legacy. I know this doc is probably not where to litigate these claims but still this felt.... casual and cursory.
GOD SAID GIVE 'EM DRUM MACHINES has a running time of 92 minutes. The film played Tribeca 2022 and will play the BFI London Film Festival. Tickets are available here.
