Synopsis by Mark Deming
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the founding of Thrill Jockey Records, one of America's best respected independent record labels, filmmaker Braden King was asked to make a film for the label. Rather than make a movie about Thrill Jockey or its artists, King instead asked over a hundred different musicians, writers, artists, and fans to discuss something that was a vital inspiration to them. The result is Looking For a Thrill: An Anthology of Inspiration, in which King shares the funny, fascinating, and sometimes moving answers he received to his questions. Interview subjects include Björk, Thurston Moore, Steve Albini, Mike Matt, Mark Arm, Ira Kaplan, Jon Spencer, Fred Armisen, and many, many more.
