A true, simple effort.
11 February 2003 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a good documentary of recording U2's first significant album. Though not much stylishly made as "Rattle and Hum" but the good point is this documentary never turned out to be a advertisement of the band that "Rattle and Hum" had. It focussed on studio as far as possible.

The shot of recording "Pride (in the name of love)" in a castle is a fine example of production. The song, in the memoir of Martin Luther King Jr. is also the best.
