Pretty good documentary on one of rock's most legendary tragedies
17 November 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Syd Barrett was one of rock's most legendary tragedies and cult figures. I'm a huge fan of his work (both with Pink Floyd and solo), so I had high hopes for this documentary. Its far from perfect, mainly because it isn't as emotional as a documentary on the subject should be. In this regard, the Roky Erickson doc "You're Gonna Miss Me" is much better. Still, its a sad tale no matter how its handled, and the wealth of archival footage makes this a must for Syd fans. The live footage of Syd when he was with Pink Floyd is in particular priceless. I didn't learn anything new, but this was still a worthwhile viewing. (7/10)
