Hands down one of the greatest Rock 'N' Roll documentaries ever filmed. I still remember sitting in a nearly empty theatre in Columbia, Maryland when this film opened and being floored by what I was experiencing. Having never seen U2 live up to that point, I was immediately pulled into their world. You could sense this was a band of men utterly on the brink of full on, world dominating stardom. And when the shadowy black and white footage finally gave way to the humming red glow of Where The Streets Have No Name (coming a full two thirds of the way into the film) my senses were overwhelmed. Nothing could have prepared me for the onslaught of raw power that transpired when the boys casually strolled onto the stage at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona and absolutely shattered the night sky with the explosion of lights captured high above from a rocketing helicopter. That transition from darkness to light signaled U2's transition from the Irish boys of their youth into the international superstars of the 80's and 90's... and beyond.

The only thing I've seen that topped this was to actually see the band live in person, which I've now done more than half a dozen times. But this film will always be my favorite Rock 'N' Roll documentary of all time. Period.
