As one whose real-time experience with The Cure started with Wish, I still have a number of blind spots with their discography and so coming across this article in Paste about the 35th anniversary of their 1987 concert film The Cure In Orange was quite an eye-opener, as I a) didn’t know it existed and b) that it was so good.
As they frame it:
And yeah, it’s a remarkable film and not just because it features Robert Smith sporting a relative brush cut and playing a Telecaster. The setting in an ancient Roman theatre in the south of France indeed gives it an epic feel, the band is in absolute top form, and the set list fantastic. Plus the 4K remaster of the version that went up on YouTube last year is truly *chef’s kiss*.
