From The Sky Down
18 January 2012 | by (North of Sweden) – See all my reviews

Why was this documentary made?

In a concert on the Zoo TV tour (i think), Bono gets asked why he dresses up as the devil. He answers by referring to a notion in a book by Christian writer C.S Lewis.

This is what Bono spends his energy thinking about. Different ways to convey his Christian belief.

In the documentary, they state that "Rattle and Hum" was a way for them to show their naivety. I think this is the goal also for this documentary. I think they wan't to diminish their own part in the creative process and show that the ideas came from the sky down.
