(4 out of 5 stars)
Most REM fans are blissfully unaware of the fact REM's guitar player, Peter Buck, has been playing with Robyn Hitchcock for more than 20 years.
Hithchock, for his part, has opened for, and played with, REM for a long time as well.
In this great documentary, Hitchock muses that Buck has sold millions of albums with REM, yet seems just as happy, if not more so, playing to a crowd of 75 people as he does to one of 100,000.
Peter Buck himself confirms that he much more prefers being in a "small" band than putting up with all the BS that comes with the territory of being a member of one of the biggest rock bands on the planet.
In the film, Hithcock invites the viewer and listener into his house in London, and gives fans an intimate and rare glimpse into his creative process.
Hitchock is truly one of the greatest living songwriters. But don't take my word for it. Peter Buck of REM, the legendary Nick Lowe, and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin fame are in the band and documentary to tell you themselves.
The only reason I didn't give the film 5 stars is that at least to me, Hithcock comes across a little bit self absorbed or "hamming it up" at times.
Other than this very small complaint, this is a highly recommended film for Hitchcock and John Lennon fans."
