Featuring interviews with Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Stan Lee and more, WE ARE X dives into YOSHIKI's life and X JAPAN's attempt to break into the American music industry. Supported by concert footage, band interviews and fan photos, the compelling film takes a look at X JAPAN's hardships and conflicts including suicide and cultism. Also spotlighting the band's triumphs, WE ARE X explores the group's phenomenal success, boasting more than 30 million albums and singles sold, countless sold-out concerts around the world, and fans in North America, Europe, Latin America and South East Asia.
Special features for WE ARE X include deleted scenes featuring Hello Kitty designer Yuko Yamaguchi and clips from Kitty Con, the New Economy Summit, Tateyama and the X Museum, as well as deleted interviews with members of X JAPAN. Extras also include seven interview vignettes with YOSHIKIi about WE ARE X, and two live performances, "Forever Love" and "Kurenai," from X JAPAN's 1997 "The Last Live" concert at the Tokyo Dome. A tribute to the band with the "Born to be Free" Fan Video featuring concert footage and global fan interviews is also included.

From the producers of the Oscar-winning film Searching for Sugar Man, comes WE ARE X, a transcendent rock and roll story about one of the biggest and most successful bands the world's never heard of...yet. Under the enigmatic direction of drummer, pianist, composer, and producer YOSHIKI, X JAPAN has sold over 30 million singles and albums combined--captivating such a wide range of admirers as Sir George Martin, KISS, Stan Lee, and even the Japanese Emperor. An astonishingly intimate portrait of a deeply haunted--but truly unstoppable--virtuoso and the music that has enthralled legions of the world's most devoted fans.
