Movie Reviews

Still Got It!
Michael Burton | Columbus, OH USA | 01/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paul Simon's voice has lost a little of its clarity and range with the passing years. His songs, however, seem to grow ever more powerful. He tours with a spectacularly talented band, and he is still a great performer. This October 2000 concert is a triumph. I found "Pledging My Love" to be a particularly effective introduction to "The Late Great Johnny Ace."

The DVD features stereo, Dolby 5.1 and DTS audio tracks. The video is enhanced for widescreen TVs.

An Amazing Concert and a Great DVD
Peter R. Christy | Palo Alto, CA USA | 02/17/2001

"I've been a Paul Simon fan for a long time, and I guess that now we're going to grow "Old" together (to steal a song title from the concert and CD). Being a long term fan is definitely a journey, not just a fond memory of your youth. Simon's poetry matures and has certainly improved over time. His music has always been excellent, but the style never fixed. Over time he's sampled and incorporated music and musicians from around the world. Some of his work has been wildly popular (e.g., Graceland), some probably only enjoyed by his faithful fans (The Capeman).I don't remember when I last heard a Paul Simon concert, but friends got us tickets when "You're the One" hit the Bay Area late in 2000. I went without any real expectations. It was great. A small venue. A great band. An excellent show. A wide selection of music, all brought "up to date" what ever way that makes sense to Simon. It was a completely satisfying experience.From the ... I discovered the Paris concert would be on PBS so taped it then. Again, completely satisfied with the TV transformation of the concert experience. The DVD arrived today, and now with considerable expectation, I popped it in, enabled DTS, and sat back to enjoy.It's not a complete substitute for the concert experience. You lose the considerable crowd experience with a lot of interesting strangers. And a sweet cloud of ... doesn't spread as soon as the lights dim, but given the limitations, it's a pretty good replica.If you're more a less a Paul Simon fan and have a good home theatre system, you'll want to add the DVD to your collection, no question. If you're a real Paul Simon fan, this is an excellent excuse to go out and buy a home theatre system (I'm not kidding)!"
Great sound from a Great Artist!

"Paul Simon and his ensemble put on a marvelous show. The DTS and DDSS 5.1 are both rich, yet simple enough to reproduce the show sound without engineering it to death. Simon fans and music fans will like the renditions of his hits with some done in novel beats. What a musical treat for the music lover!! The percussionists are extremely talented in this performance that energize the guitars along with a full vocal performance. Definitely, a masterful live presentation. The video is excellent, yet simple enough to show just what you want to see--THIS SHOW. If your Home Theater System is up to date, you are going like this DVD. The surround is again subtle and is not meant to be a demo for DTS dimensionality. It is a concert, and it sounds like a concert, so don't expect instruments from the rear channels. Be sure to watch this one with someone special and be prepared to sing along, clap your hands, and snap your fingers. Are you into music? Don't miss this one."
Faithful to what took place

"I was at the Olympia theatre for the second concert : 6th row, great view, walked out happy. The man was probably thoroughly concentrated for the shooting, hence very little interaction with the audience, except for some US fans on center front row. But the music itself, along with the playing of those top-notch musicians and the way this little man can perform his lyrics (watch 'Darling Lorraine') made this concert one of the very best I've ever seen.This DVD has got it all: great picture, excellent sound and is very true to what happened in the hall: the intimate performance of a discrete artist playing his very polished music.Of course, if you don't like Paul Simon's recent musical inclinations, you won't like this concert as even the old standard are re-arranged into this unique American/African blend. But if you don't mind opening your ears for something new you might like, buy this DVD and there is NO way you can't be disappointed!"
