Nice tribute, bad documentary
22 June 2002 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Wyatt and The Soft Machine and I was thrilled to find out there was a documentary about Robert Wyatt made by two Italian blokes and that it was available on video.

After watching it I was not impressed. The film more or less focusses on the music from Shleep - Wyatt's latest album (at time of writing) and almost half of it contains pictures of trees, subways, people walking in the street with Wyatt-music backing and filmed in black & white. I'd say: typical first-year-of-filmschool moviemaking.

It is editted with shots of old and new friends who either tell an anekdote about their times with Wyatt or praise the guy for whatever they feel like praising him for.

These shots are not chronological and it is most of the time not explained which album or time they are talking about, so for the non-initiated it's a lot of bogus crap on a stick.

The whole docu is shot in b&w, even old footage that used to be in colour! So, yes, you get to watch the Shipbuilding videoclip, but only in grays.....

There are very few archive footage shots in the whole movie anyway. There must be more filmed material of Wyatt I'd say.

Robert Wyatt deserves a good solid documentary and this is clearly not the one.

Conclusion: only buy this if you are a big fan and don't expect too much.
