Movie Info

From the late '60s to the early '70s, Pink Floyd grew from a British experimental rock band exploring the outer edges of the psychedelic experience to one of the world's most popular and revered rock groups. But one of the group's key members didn't last the full ride with the band -- Syd Barrett, the songwriter and singer who sparked the group's early hits and led the charge on their debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, descended into an introspective madness which was compounded by his ravenous enthusiasm for LSD. The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story is a documentary which examines Pink Floyd's first flash of fame, Barrett's rise and tragic fall, and how the group moved on without him while acknowledging his influence on the album Wish You Were Here. The documentary features rare performance footage, interviews with David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Roger Waters, and memories from a handful of friends and associates of the band. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The film itself still holds up very well as an informative documentary on the life of Barrett for knowledgeable fans and the completely uninitiated alike.
