IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING
More than five decades of King Crimson: a film about one of the most exciting bands in the world and its members - first and foremost the guitarist Robert Fripp, the legendary and eccentric mastermind of the band. Alongside scenes of life on tour, we hear from former and current King Crimson members. An enthralling and intimate portrait of a band whose music you don’t necessarily have to like in order to love the film. Monika Haas
