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
This picture was filmed in "real time" according to the "Director's Notes" DVD booklet. There was "...no cheating and staging scenes". See more »
There are numerous mismatches between the soundtrack music and the performances on stage and in rehearsal, including cymbal crashes and drum fills that are heard and not seen, and vice versa. See more »
This is a terrific documentary about the organization and workings of a band being formed from very talented players. And yes Miles Copeland might seem arrogant but in reality he's just being real. The other members of the band wouldn't get paid as much or draw the same audience without Sting headlining. That's one of the primary points of the film. But despite that, you appreciate that the amazing performances are solely due to the COMBINED talent of the players - not just Sting. I just wish I could find a place to buy a copy.
The ending is also very touching. This is a great movie to watch if you are a fan of Sting, Branford Marsalis, Kenny Kirkland or any of the other musicians.
