This is the first rock band documentary I have seen, so I don't really know how it compares to others, but I was thoroughly impressed with it. You get to really see what it's like being on tour with one of the biggest bands out there. Footage ranges from radio show interviews, to awkward meet-the-fan sessions, to concert footage (note: there are only a couple songs shown in concert throughout the whole film, and I think Don't Look Back In Anger is the only one played in its entirety).
One problem with the documentary though is how little we hear from Zak Starkey, Andy Bell, or Gem. All play an influential role in the band, but we only get a word or two out of them the whole time, despite them often being present. We hear more from Sergio Pizzorno (lead singer from Kasabian) than any non-Gallagher member of Oasis. Noel and Liam stay true to form and provide good entertainment throughout the film though. Kasabian and Jet also feature on the documentary (both were support bands for Oasis world tour).
While there are some flaws with this documentary, it is still very entertaining to watch. Also, the live concert filmed at the City Of Manchester Stadium is reason enough to buy the DVD. The band sound great and put on an equally great show.
