Missed Opportunity
20 October 2015 | by panta-4See all my reviews

This documentary written and directed by Martyn Atkins was about Jeff Lynne, and it was all about praising him. It is not that the man doesn't deserve praises, but that was all the are was. It was nice at the beginning but very soon an hour and twenty minutes become too long. It was very informative but there was nothing artistic in it from a film-making point... dry and uneventful, with good music which somehow finished there on its own, disconnected from anything happening on the screen.

I gave it a positive score for only one reason, Jeff Lynne! There was almost nothing about ELO (if we exclude the title), and nothing about REAL Jeff Lynne. Missed opportunity to make it big!
