My main issue with this documentary is its complete focus on only the most commerically successful aspect of vangelis.Vangelis has never been a commerical artist,never a top forty kinda of guy.He has largely been
avant garde,His most definitive album "heaven and hell" is bearly mentioned in this,5 albums with jon anderson only mentioned in passing...Voices not mentioned at all..Many bio picts of musical artist focus so much on their success,the best sellers and they always miss the artistry what people really like about them...There is a lot of mystery involving his early solo work and its never explored here..But the scenes of his solo playing is very good..really good stuff..if you can make a documentary and look past fame and success and see the artist, the musician ,the person it would be so much better..thats a good documentary ..fame passes, money passes the music,the man remain...so the point is missed here
