Synopsis by Mark Deming
In 1991, R.E.M. was already one of America's most popular and best-respected alternative rock bands when their low-key, introspective album Out of Time unexpectedly made them bonafide superstars, selling over four million copies and spawning a number of hit singles. .E.M.: This Film Is On collects video clips for several of the album's best-known songs, including "Losing My Religion," "Near Wild Heaven," "Shiny Happy People," and "Radio Song." Also included are two performances from R.E.M.'s appearance on MTV Unplugged -- "Losing My Religion" and a cover of the Troggs' classic "Love Is All Around."
