So what happens when the god of shock rock no longer shocks? The controversy surrounding the band resulted in the video being unavailable from the majority of god-fearing major US outlets ala K-Mart. In however no such problems exist. The live segment of the DVD represents a typical Manson set, covering the bands career and garnered from footage compiled during the G. World Tour. Frustratingly, each song is compiled from a number God And Government World Tour (DVD) sources, with the video footage spliced together.
Being an artist who relies so heavily on visual performance, the clips lose a lot, and we are left with little more that a cut-and-past montage of each song. It does have so nice touches though. Displaying an impressive range of costumes throughout, we see Mason causing controversy in Rome dressed as the Pope, cavorting around stage on stilts and crutches, alongside the Nuremberg rally-type crowd reactions we have seen so many times before. The shock rock pantomime continues with creative use of hats and coats.
An additional 30m short film of the band's trip around the world, this could have been a fascinating insight into the introverted extrovert that is Manson. Unfortunately the film Marilyn Manson - Guns any cohesive thread, as it jumps from live clip to back stage destructive antics, with travelling and sight seeing in-between. Ultimately it achieves little in the way of interest besides further ridiculing random Americans and featuring famous faces from the world of rock.
Anyone not having witnessed the heavily theatrical show that is Marilyn Manson this release See You Next Tuesday - Intervals & Parasite an interesting insight into one of the most controversial bands of recent times.
Marilyn Manson exists because of the band's constant re-invention of their image and ability to stand out from the surrounding rock climate. With every band now cashing in on the lucrative DVD market, the G. God And Government World Tour (DVD) only the two features on offer, the DVD falls well short of the competition. Being able to listen in Dolby 5. If this is the shape of things to come, there is surely no hope.
