Depeche Mode 101 (1989)

Electronic new wave quartet Depeche Mode focuses on last year’s Rose Bowl concert in its feature film debut. Intentionally amateurish, the film depicts Depeche Mode’s appeal through the eyes of a few of the band’s teenage fanatics.

Devotees may be thrilled with “101,” but the film fails to provide any insight into the group and reveals them to be a dull live act.
