In the Court of the Crimson King Trailer

"I can't be the only sane man in this asylum." An official trailer has just debuted for a music documentary premiering at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival coming up in March. It's titled In the Court of the Crimson King, profiling 50 years of the British band called King Crimson. They're "not a band. It's a methodology for making extraordinary music that's lasted 50 years." For over 50 years Robert Fripp, also famous for his work with Bowie and Eno, has overseen a unique creative environment in which freedom and responsibility conspire to place extraordinary demands on the band's many members - only alleviated by the applause of an audience whose adoration threatens to make their lives even harder. It's a rewarding and perilous space in which the extraordinary is possible, nothing is certain, and not everyone survives intact. "What began as a traditional documentary about the legendary band, mutated into an exploration of time, death, family, and the transcendent power of music to change lives; but with jokes." Sounds kind of fun, I guess? Take a look.

Here's the first trailer for Toby Amies' doc In the Court of the Crimson King, direct from YouTube:

In the Court of the Crimson King Film

Crimson King is a dark, comic film for anyone who wonders whether it is worth sacrificing everything for just a single moment of transcendence. It explores the unique creative environment of King Crimson, one in which freedom and responsibility conspire to place extraordinary demands on the band’s members - only alleviated by the applause of an audience whose adoration threatens to make their lives even harder. It's a rewarding and perilous space in which the extraordinary is possible, nothing is certain, and not everyone survives intact. In the Court of the Crimson King, formerly known as Cosmic FuKC, is directed by the acclaimed British artist / filmmaker Toby Amies, director of the doc The Man Whose Mind Exploded previously, as well as numerous other shorts and film projects. This is premiering at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival coming up in March. No other release dates have been set yet - stay tuned for more. Any big fans?
