Well ok so i've had this video for 15 years!
27 October 2000 | by (boone nc) – See all my reviews

this was one of my first videos that i owned(at the tender age of 15!) It is mostly concert footage of duran duran at their height performing. that in itself makes the video worthwhile. But Miles o'shea's potrayal as dr duran takes the cake.... And if you watch carefully you see bits of barbarella thrown in.

the weak spot is the Wild Boys video.... I love the video but the way it is edited in is rather weak...... But all in all it is truly a good movie!
