Movie Reviews

A Full-Length Fantasy Video!
Martin A Hogan | San Francisco, CA. (Hercules) | 02/23/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

Finally, the DVD version of Barry Gibbs ambitious full-length music video is available after over twenty years. The video quality is slightly better than the VHS, but the sound is what makes the difference. Recorded in both Enhanced 2.1 Stereo and DTS 5.1, it is a music lover's fantasy. And speaking of fantasy, it's interesting to see Gibb piece together nine of the eleven songs from the album, "Now, Voyager" into a full-length feature film video. Some of it is dated and silly, ("I Am Your Driver"), some of it is sheer romance, ("One Night (For Lovers"), "Stay Alone") and the rest is just fascinating images set perfectly to each song. "Fine Line" with a clean-shaven Barry and an R&B band with two sexy black back-up singers is a highlight.

The film is strung together as a dream sequence where Gibb has a car accident in an irrigation channel and ends up in an old swimming bathhouse, where an elderly gentleman "guides" him through some of life's more important lessons, using the songs as threads. It's all fun and not too serious. It really is the music that makes it, and even with "She Says" and "Face To Face" missing, it is still a huge enjoyable experience.

Note that there is a 23-minute "making of" documentary with an all too serious 37 year-old Barry Gibb explaining the intent and purpose of this grand experiment.

If you are a Barry Gibb fan this is a must see. I wish She Says and Face to Face were also in there but Barry is just wow no other words for it. The clean shaven Mr Gibb reminded me so much of Andy but the song as they all were are all Barry using the many different ways he can use his voice. I too could have done without You Driver. Kind of silly, but this is serious ear and eye candy for the Barry fans out there

Great Barry Gibb Material

"Boy, does Barry Gibb remind me of his younger brother Andy in this compliation of music videos for the Voyager album that are linked together in a story/dream sequence. Barry Gibb is a beautiful man - these videos were shot in the 1980's and reflect what type of videos were on the cutting edge back when videos were in their infancy. The making of the video short shows Barry's vision for the project and was enjoyable to watch."
True Barry Gibb

"Bizarre, but a must see for die hard Barry Gibb fans. Something sensuously romantic and eerie about every minute. Never saw Barry look so much like Andy which added an even more surreal sense to the production. Loved the music and sound quality, but not having read reviews was shocked and disappointed that Face to Face was not included. Was nice to hear even a portion of it in the Inside Now Voyager segment. Overall.... loved it. I have watched the price jump up and down for years. Keep your eyes peeled for a reasonable offer. I couldn't wait to have it and I was not disappointed."
