The concert film, which records the final night of a two-year tour, is a must for fans of the avant-garde pixie. For the Björk-curious, a little of her atonal pop musings can go a long way, but the documentary is a dynamic introduction to a singular talent in full bloom, as well as a well-crafted memento of an ambitious project, infused with end-of-tour emotion.
"Biophilia" began with Björk's eighth studio album and extends to a series of music apps and interactive workshops. But directors Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland focus on the show itself, the first in-the-round performance at Alexandra Palace. The Icelandic diva's paean to nature, music and technology transform the historic venue into a reimagined planetarium, complete with introductory voiceover by David Attenborough. But the subject is a single planet, Earth.
