Great story let down by production values
23 April 2018 | by richdirectorSee all my reviews

Interviews that thread the narrative of the story are shot so badly it is almost distracting. Some clunky editing and poor start / explanation showing the formation of the band gives way to very interesting and thought provoking stories. Interesting what it could have been with higher production values.
