Total disappointment. I've been cheated!
7 August 2003 | by (Johannesburg, South Africa) – See all my reviews

This "movie" was surely only released to capitalize on the name of Syd Barret and milk the fan base for a few bucks. When I saw this title being released I, like a few other die hard fans, jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on it, as it surely won't be printed and reprinted for decades to come. Grave was my disappointment when I watched this attempt. The sound is awful, the person holding the camera was surely self-medicating and the few images you get to see don't tell us more about Syd, his life, his music or his time with the Floyd. I can only describe it as a rip-off. I have been cheated and I recommend to all fans out there to give this one a miss. In fact, forget you even heard about it.
