This release follows Jane's Adiction back on the road in 1997 for the first time since they split six years earlier. Three of the original members have returned with the exception being bass player Eric Avery, so his place is filled by Red Hot Chilli Pepper bass player Flea.

Of course the stars of the show are going to be front man Perry Farrell and guitarist Dave Navarro. Drummer Stephen Perkins gets to make an odd appearnce while Flea is fairly non existint. You do get to see the ramblings of Farrell and Navarro and theres no doubt that theres some big egos here which would explain the short lived reunion.

But what you will really come back for is the live performances which are electric and show why Jane's are one of the most vital bands to come along in the last 20 years. The performances are not in their enteriety but give enough of an indication of what a Jane's show is all about. Ted, just admit it is an awesome performance while the brilliant Three Days is just plain epic.

Theres also 40 minutes of extra footage that didnt make the final cut. But its the live scenes which you will keep coming back to.

Lovely Christmas Movie 24 Nov. 2009
By Alba4me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I'm a big fan of Christmas Movies...I've watched Three Days on TV for several years now, and have searched for the DVD each year with no luck. I finally found this listed but am saddened to see it is no longer available -- and, doesn't appear it was available in the Region 1 format (US/Canada) anyway. Too bad. This movie always gives me that gentle reminder to not take even one day for granted with the people we love as you never know when it could be your last...so, sad it is not available on DVD.

Was it worth the long wait? 18 Oct. 2003
By Michael Topper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
After six years of hearing almost non-stop hype about this film--how it chronicled the group's enthusiasm and energy at the beginning of the reunion and degenerated into more drug-addled
friction by the end--actually seeing it was a slight anti-climax. The biggest complaint is that half of the songs are
incomplete--some are only shown for one or two minutes, while others like "Ted Just Admit It" are complete but cut up and
interspersed with interview footage. The title cut is almost complete--and an amazing, sensuous performance--but the last two minutes, the CLIMAX, are cut for no reason at all.
Because the priority of this film lies in the interviews and backstage madness rather than the music itself, one must ask if this was enough to justify the hype. Well, the interviews are OK, they concentrate mostly on Farrell (who is a scream sometimes, especially when he's pontificating on The Torah just after having had an orgy on-stage with ten backup dancers), although Navarro also gets some time to act like a silly rock star. Perkins and Flea are virtually ignored, although Flea does weigh in with some choice comments toward the end of the film, and emerges as the most likeable. There are a lot of celebrity cameos, like Vil Kilmer, Alyssa Milano, Anthony Keidis, etc. etc. and they enhance the celebratory nature of the tour, but nothing really pops out as essential except for a brief cameo by the legendary Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters in San Francisco. The group seem in their element in this city,
and it is when the film takes on a genuine freak/hippie vibe--rather than the inevitable MTV/Hollywood one--that their alternative ambitions seem most fulfilled.
The biggest problem remains that complete performances could easily have been fit in; their cutting seems arbitrary. Which is a shame, since the tour--particularly the first three or four dates--was outstanding, with plenty of ambience, colorful clothing, masks, candles, incense, and the group playing at a peak. At the least, "Three Days" does capture the feel of Jane's Addiction at their most gleefully hedonistic, it's just that after two minutes of "Mountain Song" one is left wanting to hear the whole thing, which would only have been another two minutes or so!
The bonus 40 minutes of footage is compiled much like the film itself, with the interviews dominating, although some nice rehearsal footage of ballads like "Classic Girl" and "I Would For You" manages to finds its way in there. In short, I would recommend it Janes fans, but with the caveat that this could have been an *amazing* work with better editing.

Hugely Disappointing.......... 11 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Well well well......maybe its just that I have never had the chance to experience a JA gig in the flesh that I was relying so heavily on this DVD to give me something of the sheer umimaginable ......but I can't for the love of ????? find a lot to praise it. the rare moments of musicality which any fan craves in something like this are edited in such a way to make you furious....I mean come on WE WANT TO HEAR THE WHOLE SONG !!!!!!!!!!!! DON'T STOP IN THE MIDDLE AND WANDER OFF SOMEPLACE ELSE ..... JESUS CHRIST !!!!!!! and the documentary style .....it all smacks of amateur .....

Great Expectations................ 13 Nov. 2003
By "pieterbalk" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As a European I missed out on Jane's addiction 'till the release of 1990's Rutual CD. I catched the band on their now legendary European 1990 tour and again on their return to Europe in early 1991. These tours stood the test of time and bring back great memories to some of the finest concerts i have ever seen.
October 2003 12 years later and jane's Addiction returns to Europe and all expectations are lived up to, the band is in top form, their album STRAYS is a fine, more commercial but still definitely true Jane's style, new album and the audience in Amsterdam went bezerk!
How happy was I to finally see this documentary being released on DVd to still my jane's hunger after the shows in Europe. Unfortuantely the Relapse tour was a far stretch from the superb new tour. While Flea might be a great bass player for the Chilli's he isn't for Jane's. For different matters the tour is like a circus act and doesn't capture the essence of Jane's Addiction. While some interviews give a great insight in the band and their members the performances don't have the quality they had in de haydays and on their current tour.
I suggest everyone spend their money on tickets for their current tour or any of their cd's. Jane's Addiction is a great band but should leave documentaries to others and strictly release CD's (a live DVD, maybe?) and play excellent shows like the ones I saw recently!
