12-12-12, which I saw a couple of weeks ago, is a better-than-decent film about community. It’s basically a concert flick, of course, but it’s really a finely-woven patchwork thing about organizers and entertainers putting aside their agendas and working together to raise $50 million for the communities hurt by Hurricane Sandy (i.e., the Robin Hood Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund) and…well, about a big mass hug. Director Amir Bar Lev (The Tillman Story) conveys a strong sense of community, feeling, caring. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Billy Joel (who needs to drop a few pounds), Alicia Keys, Paul McCartney (looks great), Dave Grohl, Roger Waters, Eddie Vedder, Chris Martin, Michael Stipe, Adam Sandler, Eric Clapton, Jon Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger will always be the consummate rock and roll rooster), The Who, Kanye West, etc. A lot of musicians in their 60s, a lot of classic rock tunes, a lot of long stringy gray hair flopping around. At one point Billy Crystal, hanging around backstage, says it’s comforting to watch and listen to musicians who are older than him.
