One of the best docs you'll get to see
3 March 2007 | by (Bristol, UK) – See all my reviews

Living close to Glastonbury I've seen a great deal about the festival over the years and most of the programmes have been so so. This documentary could easily have been a mess because of the sheer archival volume but it's not and mainly because it's been so sympathetically edited. The nice thing about the way that it's been cut it that it hasn't followed an obvious structure. It could have been chronological but it isn't, or it could have followed themes which it hasn't either, so it makes for a constantly surprising trip, never allowing you to fall into predictable rut. The over riding feel that the doc presents is how truly eccentric some of us British are and that's nice cos over the years we've tended to become a little boring by mimicing too much of the US way of life (which isn't known for its eccentricity or originality). Having worked in TV for over thirty years I'm hard to please as far as film structure is concerned, so its always exciting when something like this comes along. Go to some lengths to watch this work of great love and tenderness and you may learn a little more about what separates inspired work from the average and mundane. I really loved this film and everyone who worked on it should be extremely proud of themselves.
