It's only natural that a film documenting a studio session between Skrillex and the remaining members of the Doors, which is funded by Hyundai's atrociously named Veloster, be met with some level of trepidation. This is exactly what RE:GENERATION, a new music documentary that also sees collaborations between Pretty Lights and LeAnn Rimes, DJ Premier and the Berklee Symphony Orchestra, and Mark Ronson and a veritable all-star cast of MCs and New Orleans jazz musicians sets out to do. And the results, while not always perfect, are much less of a musical cacophony than you might think.
