Trivia

Barry Diamond was very busy in this movie. In addition to playing a stage hand, he also played the blind person at the funeral that fell into the grave yelling "Wait, I'm not dead!", the stoner in Captain Cloud's band who shouted "I've got the bong!", and the guy with his face painted black and white who was screaming "Nada, Nada, Nada, Nada, Nada, Nada..." and introduced Neil's little sister Susie to his "children" in the balcony.

Goofs

When Auden walks straight out into the street, one car barely misses him and two more (blue car and the same orange car that Nada and her band arrive at the theatre in) skid to one side and almost crash. In the next shot, the blue car is still there, but the orange car (which should have been blocked in by the blue car) is gone. See more »

Yes, this video (DVD? Dream on!) is tough to find, but definitely worth it! I haven't checked Netflix--my source for easy access to some obscure entertainment--but I'm betting you just can't find it for rent these days.

I agree with the review, in all its enthusiasm and detail. This really is a time capsule--but unlike traditional capsules, this one doesn't get stale the second--or third, fifth, tenth...-- time you peruse the contents!

Today's Lou Reed is way too serious (what did you feed him full of anyway, Laurie Anderson?!?), so this is a great look back on my musical hero when he was still a real person. Love his unresolved meditation on "It's a Deathbed Request."

But you're sure to find resolution among the various takes on a favorite blues standard. Arena rock, punk, beyond-punk, blooos--take yer pick. You'll love the interpretations.

So--begin your search, and prepare for some great watchin'!
