Leaves much to be desired...
24 July 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

First off, I'm a huge fan of U2. So, maybe I watched "The Joshua Tree" documentary with too many expectations. I was severely disappointed by how much of the discussion was dedicated to how ahead of its time the album was, how timeless it will be, and how other (and others') music doesn't measure up to it. I wouldn't have minded had this been coming from critics. However, most of it was from each member of the band and those involved with the making of the album. Call me crazy, but I'd rather not listen to how great an artist thinks his/her work is during a documentary.

Although that may be a somewhat trivial annoyance, I was also disappointed with the lack of content. I wanted to hear more relatable stories. By the end of the short "hour of bragging", oops, I mean documentary, I felt no closer to really knowing the band. This is something that was accomplished in a much greater way with the Rattle and Hum video (which is amazing if you haven't seen it). Actually, I take that back, I learned that the gossip was true, U2 is incredibly vain.

Nevertheless, the album is an amazing one, and this video does an okay job of keeping my attention for an hour. I wouldn't be too sad if I never saw it again however.
