Movie Reviews

For dreamers, music fans and open road enthusiasts!

"Ever wondered what it would be like to go on a cross-country tour with a rock star? Well, I did and I made a film about it. Expecting luxury tour buses and five-star hotels, I found Glenn Tilbrook, the former lead singer of Squeeze, touring in a mobile home and bedding down in roadside campgrounds.

This intimate film follows Tilbrook on every step of his first solo tour of America in his beloved-but not so reliable-home on wheels. From the search for his missing RV; adventures in engine repair and exploding generators, to a musical house call that one fan will never forget: All access, all of the time.

It's the story of how an established artist adjusts to his independent surroundings. It's a commentary on the current state of the music induestry. But, most importantly, it's a human-interest story that transcends its musical base. Includes exclusive live acoustic performances of Tempted, Hourglass, Take Me I'm Yours, Up The Junction, Pulling Mussels (From the Shell), Goodbye Girl, Another Nail in My Heart, Is That Love, Black Coffee in Bed, Parallel World, This Is Where You Ain't and Some Fantastic Place.

SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:
*A never before seen interview with Squeeze lyricist Chris Difford from 2002

*My 1991 public access cable interview with Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook from my music video show in Dayton, Ohio

*Audio commentary by Glenn Tilbrook

*Glenn's Q&A from the Tokyo screening of the film and more!!

"A very funny, unique travelogue that stays with you long after the credits roll." Ian Gittins/Q Magazine

"Glenn is the antithesis of Spinal Tap rock delusion and in this film, he comes across as the hardcore troubadour who loves what he does." Peter Curran/BBC

"Glenn is a great artist. He's had a stellar career and would have one in journalism if he were so inclined. I love him. You will too." Randy Newman

"When I first met Glenn, I thought he could write songs like Brian Wilson and play guitar like Jimi Hendrix. I knew he was going to go places and with this DVD he has!" Jools Holland/BBC"

"As a long time fan of Glenn Tilbrook, both as a solo artist and founder member of Squeeze, I was delighted to hear about a film looking at life on the road with the man. I was fortunate to see a screening last year and I wasn't disappointed. Film maker Amy Pickard, is clearly a talent and has produced a movie that follows Glenn as he crosses the US of A in an RV.

It's a delight to see it finally appear as a DVD. The film is a mix of styles, part documentary and part interview that trails Glenn onstage, offstage and backstage.

Director Amy Pickard creates an atmosphere of intimacy that allows Glenn's exuberant personality to fill the screen. The music pieces are entertaining and give the viewer a "live gig" experience.

If you add to that the range of extras, this is a super package that shouldn't be missed.

If you're a Glenn fan, or Squeeze fan, this is a must. Music fans in general will also find this a good watch. Glenn is half of what is rightly regarded as, the best song writing partnership of their generation and this is a chance to see a great entertainer ply his trade.

This is Amy's first project but she has created a film that may be low on budget but is high on quality.

Nice work Amy, thanks.

"I saw this movie and couldn't stop talking about it for days. Even if you know nothing about the band Squeeze this movie will make you smile. A heartwarming story about a guy playing music for all the right reasons."
O.F.T.R. in three words: brilliant, fantastic, superb!

""One for the Road" is a visual delight to behold. And Glenn Tilbrook is a sonic genius.

This DVD fully encapsulates Glenn's joy of music. My brother, Joe, and I have seen Squeeze, Difford & Tilbrook and/or Tilbrook solo perform live at least 30 times. Needless to say, Glenn is one of the greatest singer/guitarists of all time. We were blessed to meet him, once again, in The OC during the 2001 "Incomplete" tour. In fact, my brother is the bloke with the Cool for Cat-esque SQUEEZE tattoo you see in this documentary.

My wife, Suzanne, has met Glenn as well. And she said, while viewing OFTR from the get-go, "he is genuinely a sincere and nice person." Indeed. Glenn always takes the time to chat, sign autographs and quaff a cold one. Cheers, then!

Squeeze made amazing music for 25 years. Now Glenn has picked up the torch, and he's running with it headlong. You won't want to miss this story...about a man, two guitars and a Cruise Master.

God bless you, Glenn!!!"
