Phish fans will love, others will be indifferent
25 August 2003 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

As a huge Phish fan, I obviously loved this movie. It's great to see interviews with the band and to gain their perspectives on things (i.e. How Mike tells Trey he plays too many notes. You can actually see some tension there). As for non-Phish fans, my opinion is that music lovers will appreciate this movie and will like this documentary. Others just won't get it (much like how people feel about Phish's music).
