Alanis Morissette: Jagged Little Pill

For true believers, this documentary of Alanis Morissette’s ’95-96 world tour offers up plenty of home-movie moments of the rubber-limbed post-hippie queen shambling across stages and goofing with the boys in the band. The editing of the concert footage, however, really grates. Instead of simply showing us one rendition of any given song, Jagged Little Pill, Live splices together sonically and visually disparate performances, giving the proceedings all the charm of a cat-scratched LP. Not ironic, and not very good either. C
