I Trust You to Kill Me
Vivendi Visual Entertainment
Who knew Kiefer Sutherland even had a music label? This decent rock-doc follows Sutherland as he shepherds his house band Rocco DeLuca and the Burden—think a harder version of Jeff Buckley’s vaguely rootsy drone, fronted by the charismatic DeLuca—through a bumpy tour across Europe. Sutherland is supposed to be acting as road manager, but he seems more concerned with getting hammered, philosophizing straight-to-camera and losing his cell phone. I Trust You to Kill Me is the very definition of vanity project, but it’s a fairly entertaining vanity project, with a sideways look at the pitfalls and advantages of celebrity. The film also contains one instant-classic scene of TV’s Jack Bauer tackling what one only can assume is a rogue-terrorist Christmas tree in a London hotel lobby.
