A documentary about the making of the first Sting album. Not only is some time spent in the studio (much of was recorded in an interesting mansion), but there is also some interesting information about what was going on in the lives of the members of his band during that time, including Sting's child being born.Written by
The name Sting rhymed with the first word of the film's Bring on the Night (1985) title. As such, the artist's name above-the-title top billing in movie posters rhymed with the start of this picture's title. See more »
During the last song, "Message in a Bottle", Sting plays a cream Fender Telecaster. For the last verse through the end of the song, he is playing a black Fender Stratocaster. When he says, "Goodnight," and walks off stage, he is seen taking off the cream Telecaster. The song is clearly pieced together from separate performances. See more »
This may be one of if not THE best rock documentary ever! While most "rock-umentaries" just show a long, drawn-out concert, this one goes from Sting's leaving The Police, to forming an entirely brand new band, to Sting's first solo concert. Some people criticize this movie because some of the interviewees are blunt, pretentious, offensive, or whatever. Well, I'm sorry, do you want a truthful documentary or do you want fiction? If you want to see the making of a REAL rock band, this is a must see film. And if you don't like the music, then seriously, there must be something wrong with you!
