Lou Reed's 2006 live concert performance of his 1973 concept album "Berlin", filmed over five nights at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York
15 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lou Reed's brilliant musicianship and Schnabel's deft hand at directing combined with gorgeous rich sound makes this the finest rock and roll concert movie of my life. The huge band, including choir, back up singers, horns and strings held down by the greatest rhythm section ever were filmed and recorded such that Lou Reed's stellar performance and incredible poetry were allowed to shine in all their unique genius. Lou's vocal performance was brilliant in its execution and in the recording. His back up musicians were outstanding. The solo's, including the vocal solos, were delightful in their musicality and originality. Schnabel's sets and the his daughter's performance enhanced the visual pleasure created through simple unaffected camera work superbly shot and edited. Ask me if I liked it.
