Shoegaze, that once-maligned genre of effects-laden wall-of-guitar music, finally gets its own documentary. “Beautiful Noise” focuses on three seminal 1980s bands — Cocteau Twins, The Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine — while tracing their influence down through groups like Ride, Slowdive, Curve and Lush with exclusive interviews, and the only drawback is a $15 (!) price to download. Fans won’t be disappointed.
