Great documentary!!!!
27 February 2002 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

This is a very well made documentary. The group is very candid and passionate. I liked the fact that this was shot during the making thru completion of the record, but stops before it is released. Did they know how big and successful this album and touring would be? The guitarist, though spacey, left during the tour, but here, he is happy. No one is seen fighting. Are they a real band? Maybe that was edited or maybe they really do love each other? I think it is the latter.

I didn't notice that it was shot in black and white, it just simply fit(or I don't notice the obvious). The mansion that they used is magnificent, but under furnished. What a great idea to use a house instead of a "stagnate" recording studio as Anthony puts it. It shows the band at complete ease.

The movie shows what goes into recording an album. Songs that sound complete are shown rough, but still have the framework, compliments of Rick Rubin and the vision of the band (and the editing). Everyone's playing is great. Flea and John's backing vocals are a riot against Anthony's singing.

I wish band movies were longer than an hour. Who started that? Kudo's to the director. Good editing and shooting.
