In the Court of the Crimson King: King Crimson at 50

In the Court of the Crimson King: King Crimson at 50

This Toby Amies film portrays the relentless suffering and fleeting glory experienced by members of the world’s most demanding rock band: King Crimson

Robert Fripp, who has also worked with Bowie and Eno, creates an environment for the band where the extraordinary is possible, nothing is certain, and not everyone survives intact. This film is unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of this group of musicians, how they relate to each other, and the inner workings of the music industry. A dark comedy for anyone who has considered sacrificing everything to make it big.
