We gave it a B

After a limited U.S. theatrical run and over much hipster ballyhoo, Meeting People is Easy, a look at Radiohead’s 1997-98 world tour, hits video. It is rote as a rockumentary, sophomoric as a media critique, and only OK as a concert film. But it’s hypnotic if considered as a companion piece to the band’s textural angst-rock — an expressive mood piece creepy with cosmopolitan paranoia and bracingly somber bombast. B
