Operation Screenshot (Films of the Nineties) W.I.Z.'s Suede: Love and Poison (1993)

W.I.Z.'s extraordinary concert film, Love and Poison, that captured Suede during their legendary stand at The Brixton Academy in May of 1993 has recently been reissued in the astonishing 3-disc deluxe package celebrating Suede's masterful debut album. Love And Poison remains a stunning experience and is as dazzling (and dizzying) as any concert film ever made. More than just a typical performance based film, Love and Posion captures all of the manic energy and blinding brilliance of Suede in those early years and it is one of the definitive portraits of a truly great band ever caught on film. The entire Suede catalogue has recently been remastered and re-released in these incredible 3-discs sets and I highly recommend them.
