Oh man. what a pointless dvd.

"don't bother unless you're some obsessed fan. painfully boring. there should be a warning label on the package that clearly states that the dvd contains NO real concert footage with live sound. there's one acoustic performace of Corduroy that's worth hearing, but that's it. The rest of this is just Tim Middlewick's semi-artsy attempt to make a video-collage using random cinerama tour footage set to the studio recordings of Torino. uh, okay.. it wouldn't even be that bad of an idea if they included audio of the band members interacting and tried to create any sort of coherent story out of the mess, but they don't. the music makes the random footage seem overly sentimal- but since nothing actually happens throughout the course of the documentary, it feels horribly forced. no band members say a word except for david gedge, and most of his dialogue is limited to small talk about equipment or songs. there's one short interview towards the end that isn't completely trite, and there's a "quaint" scene where he thumbs through his record collection and talks about his influences, but there's nothing new here for anyone who already owns cinerama and knows what david gedge looks like. c'mon. go buy it. waste your money."
