This excellent documentary follows the Irish group U2 on their concert tour of the United States in support of their seventh album Joshua Tree. The politically involved rock quartet sets their sights on American musical influences, previously ignored. They quickly immerse themselves in the musical culture with a recording session at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis. Four tracks were recorded that ended up on their next record appropriately called Rattle And Hum. Blues Legend B.B.King adds

Watch It Now
Nicely shot if not terribly innovative concert film.
R&H exists as it does simply because U2 had “planned” too much ahead of time, the antithesis of spontaneity and the killjoy of documentary filmmaking.
Unsatisfying, humorless documentary on the stalwart Irish band
Awfully preachy for a rock movie, but still has some great tunes.
They're the biggest band in the world; you'd think they'd at least have something interesting to say.
