Storyline

Based on the acclaimed memoir One Train Later by rock guitarist Andy Summers, Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police follows Summers' journey from his early days in the psychedelic '60s music scene, when he played with The Animals, to chance encounters with drummer Stewart Copeland and bassist Sting, which led to the formation of a punk trio, The Police. During the band's phenomenal rise and its dissolution at the height of their popularity in the mid-80s, Summers captured history with his candid photographs. Utilizing rare archival footage and insights from the guitarist's side of the stage, Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police brings together past and present as the band members reunite, more than two decades later, for a global reunion tour in 2007.

Fascinating and entertaining
22 November 2018 | by Phil_ChesterSee all my reviews

I was a huge fan of The Police in their day, having bought all of their albums. But I never knew any of their story, so this was fascinating. It was really entertaining to hear their music again, but all the tracks felt cut short, which was a shame. If you're not a fan of them already, this film won't convert you, but if you are a fan this is a wonderful trip down memory lane.
