In the terrain of rock bands, implosion or explosion is seemingly inevitable. U2 has defied the gravitational pull towards destruction; this band has endured and thrived. This documentary asks the question why.
What I think to be the best of the U2 Videos, and actually, of any videotaped concert. I believe it even won several awards for being the best concert of a particular year.
