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

Robert Fripp and the members of prog-rock giants King Crimson look back on 50 years of art, discipline and transcendence in this fascinating, funny and moving film.

**** - RTÉ GUIDE

“This unflinching portrait of the prog rock band is like an episode of The Office but with huge drum kits, grizzled roadies and rapturous fans.”
“Utterly enthralling"
- The Guardian

“It's about the burden of dreams and the misery of making art. It's very accessible, very moving, and very funny."
- Mark Kermode

“By turns comical and melancholy, it may be the most revealing film about working life in a band since Spinal Tap."
- The Telegraph

“Doc about a Prog-Rock Perfectionist Is Nearly Perfect Itself. About as good as Rock documentaries get."
- Variety

SYNOPSIS: King Crimson is a band that people literally are dying to be in. In the Court of the Crimson King is a dark, comic film for anyone who wonders whether it is worth sacrificing everything for just a single moment of transcendence. 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 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.
