Weaker upon a few subsequent viewings, but nonetheless an essential, authoritative account of Joshua Tree-era U2. The for-the-most-part decision to utilize black and white photography is a smart one. A nice album companion.
Great musical film if you are a fan of U2. Sort of a documentry filmed during the U2 Joshua Tree tour. There are some interviews, some film showing the band traveling and touring the USA. Plus tons of great music.
Im not much on concert films, I would rather see the band live and in person. that being said this movie was pretty good. My suggestion for this one is to have a nice surround sound available and crank it up!
This film was my introduction to U2. I've been addicted ever since. The documentary end the defining years of U2, and in my opinion sends them speeding into the 90's where they made their best music. If you like the classic U2, then you've found what you're looking for.
More a concert film than a band documentary. Essential for U2 fans because it chronicles the close of the first third of their career. The period between "Rattle & Hum" and "Pop" takes the band in a totally different, and perhaps less credible, direction.
