What a fantastic documentary!!!
20 July 2003 | by (Beautiful Day, USA) – See all my reviews

This was a great look into the making of one of the greatest albums of all time. It shows the band members in a unique and candid way. Now all we need is a new documentary about the making of U2's highly superior "Achtung Baby".
