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

USA | 2022 | 86 mins | NR


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.


Director: Toby Amies
Cast: Robert Fripp, Mel Collins, Tony Levin, Bill Bruford, Adrian Belew, Pat Mastelotto
