First of all, I have never listened to much of Gov't Mule. I've only heard "Greasey Granny Gopher Guts Parts 1 & 2," and I only listened to them because Les Claypool plays bass on those tracks. Although after watching this film and buying some of their cds, I have now become a fan of their music.
I borrowed the DVD of this film off of a friend for the same reason I listened to those "Greasey Granny Gopher Guts" songs (that being that Les Claypool is featured in this film). After viewing this I have to say that if you play bass, you should go out and purchase this movie now! It features some of the greatest bassists alive today, documents their bass playing, what inspires them, and talks about their various styles. This movie will inspire a lot of bass players (as it did myself) to strive to be the best they possibly can and proves that there is so much talent out there that MTV won't play but instead play a bunch of crap (yes I'm talking about Linkin Park).
Only complaint is that for a Gov't Mule fan, they will most likely be disappointed. There isn't much footage of the band and should of been more info and footage of Allen Woody. But what is featured here is great and like I've said, any bass player should enjoy this. 9.5/10
