The rare footage and the subject matter saves it

I'm probably biased in this because I love the music and style of Daft Punk, so watching this documentary was really interesting, as much of it covers reaction within a scene and industry that I am not familiar with at all. So in a way, the focus was not only on their history, but what it meant to the music world in general.

There's also a surprising amount of footage of them before they donned the robot outfits. I was expecting maybe a couple of photos, but you get videos from concerts and similar. They've also seemed to track don't the audio interviews they could, which is good for those of us who don't speak French.

That said, they have made some odd choices in what the prioritized. The Tron-soundtrack is barely given any attention at all, and there seems to be quite a lot of interviews with famous people that offer little new about Daft Punk. I'm fine with some of that, but here there were perhaps a little too much. Also how people they've been with in their career are used as headlines for parts of the documentary - I don't really see the reason for it.

As far as I know, this is still the documentary to watch if you like Daft punk, and it's obvious that they did quite a lot of research for it.

Worth seeing even if you don't love their music.

As a 51 year-old man, I am certainly NOT the target audience of this documentary about Daft Punk. I do not hang out in clubs nor am I especially hip. On the other hand, I have long admired these two French musicians (Guy-Manuel and Thomas) because of their showmanship and marketing genius. Instead of seeking fame in the traditional way, the duo have remained anonymous--donning modified motorcycle helmets and pretending to be robots in all public appearances. This is the ultimate commitment to electronic music and it's made them legendary...as well as Grammy winners.

What makes this a very interesting film is that you only catch small glimpses of the guys' faces...and then, only very early in their careers. They also do not participate in making the film and aren't interviewed...mostly because robots don't do interviews and they are THAT committed to their personas! Instead, you hear from folks who have worked with them and admirers. It all paints a portrait of two marketing geniuses who also make exceptional music...and is intriguing and well made throughout.
