Director of Blur’s new film ‘To The End’: “This is about friendship and brotherhood”

Blur‘s new documentary To The End has spoken to NME about the emotional process of making the film – and what the future might hold for the band.The film, directed by Transgressive Records founder Toby L, follows the reunion of Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree on their return to record 2023 comeback album ‘The Ballad Of Darren’ ahead of a tour culminating in pair of shows at London’s Wembley Stadium last summer.However, with Albarn reeling from his split from his long-term partner Suzi Winstanley after 25 years, and some struggle for other members to return to being in an arena band, the road back isn’t as smooth at first as they’d hoped.In a five-star review of To The End, NME concluded: “They bicker, they hug, they call each other c**ts, they get the job done.
