Fantastic
18 February 2002 | by (Edmond, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

I finally saw the movie today. It was on the Sundance Channel.

I love Robyn's music and have had the good fortune to seem him twice in concert. This replicated those experiences.

You can't truly appreciate Robyn by just listening to a CD. He has such a unique outlook on everything and tells the most interesting stories.

That's what makes the movie valuable as a chronicle of Robyn. It captures his music and some of his stories.

Fantastic!
