The Who: Live at the Isle of Wight Festival Reviews
The final footage of a young Keith Moon hamming it up for the camera wearing a comic mask is rather poignant, as it captures the core simplicity of the beloved man-child and substance abuser that ended up dying in 1978 due to his vices.
Like so many "concert" films, it's critical reception really comes down to whether the viewer is a fan or not. For Who fans, this is a priceless must-see. For others, there is much to be appreciated here and hopefully enough to convert the uninitiated to become a Whooligan.
Finally, the cameras are zooming on John Entwistle! Because of the epic skeleton suit -apparently-, which according to him was bought in a hurry and turned out to be very small as well as uncomfortable, we get to see John a lot more than usual.
Well-directed, intense, fantastic!
