10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By T. Clenaghan on 24 Feb. 2007
Format: DVD
This is a must for any fans, it was approved by pete and has a full length interview with him and interviews with close friends. There is footage of him on the road, with Kate and some great performances. He talks about being rejected by The Libertines and he reveals the truth about Max Carlish and his pitiful attempt to make a name for himself. I thought Pete was an amazing lyricist, guitarist and performer and watching this only confirmed it. For those of you that dont already think this, i'm sure watching this will change your mind. Pete hits the headlines for his addictions and crazy antics, if you want to see what this man is really about i suggest you buy this DVD! As Pete states, "i can sit and talk about crack all day but its not my specialist subject".

As a massive fan of Pete Doherty, I think that I was always going to give this 2005 film, of which the man himself gave it his approval, a good review, but I do honestly believe that you don't you have to any respect for him to be able to enjoy it either. If anything, if might help to refresh your minds of his talents, as opposed to the many grubby headlines he has attracted, and maybe even feel a little compassion towards him.

This documentary contains a candid, full-length interview with Pete, as well as accurate stories from his band members and other people who have closely encountered him, and the critics who will remain fameless. All of this goes towards building up a fascinating, and revealing portrait of a troubled genius.

Although there is a lot of focus on Pete's well published addictions with the drugs, his status as an amazing lyricist and performer is touched upon as well. In the end, I found myself feeling sorry for Pete, who speaks openly about The Libertines breaking up, and from that we are given the chance to see a much more emotional and sweeter side to this man's personality.

If you are hoping to be able to catch some footage of his first band The Libertines in action, you'll be disappeared as there is hardly any. Although I'd have liked to have heard a lot more about Pete's early years, this was a fascinating look at the music and demons of a truly gifted man, who cuts a sad figure. It's a great one for the fans, and the special features include music videos.

Telling, but troubling 2 July 2006
By santacruz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The second half of this DVD, and maybe especially the extended interview in the "extras", does show why Doherty enthralls fans and captivates the media. His talent and charm and intelligence are prodigious, and they shine through even in this second-rate piece of hagiography. But the first half is almost chilling, as Doherty's friends and bandmates come across as the "vampires" of lyrics by Carl Barat, Doherty's former partner in the Libertines. Barat once described Babyshambles as Doherty's "denial band" because it denies that Doherty's crack and heroin use are problems. That really comes through here. The narrator even describes Doherty kicking in Barat's door and stealing from him to sell his treasures as "borrowing", with the things later "showing up" (or some similar term) in a pawnshop. It's disturbing to see Doherty's friends try to insulate him to a destructive degree, and it's to Doherty's credit that they don't seem to fully succeed. But it's painful to hear Doherty's take on Barat's putting the Libertines on ice. It's even sadder to hear what that situation did to him--this is not just some junkie rock star, as toss-off tabloid articles assert, this is a genius songwriter, and anyone who's heard, say, F*** Forever, has to be grateful that he pulled himself out of that and continued writing. But it's tough watching him ramble and bristle while obviously too high to be lucid, much less creative. (As he put it, if he's holding a crack pipe, he's not holding a guitar.) This is not a good documentary by any measure, but in spite of itself, it is a fascinating look at a fascinating talent.

a good look inside the mind of a troubled star 5 Sept. 2007
By B. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
With Pete being a popular subject in tabloid and media news lately, people have seem to forgotten what brought him to this point in the first place. Pete's public image and personal life may be under constant scrutiny but one thing that should not be scrutinized is the man's ability to put together a catchy melody and combine that with a poetic sense of lyricism. This film does a great job of combining that public image and his musical passion and balancing those area's out to allow the viewer to be a fair judge of Pete's influence on music today. The interview's done with Pete throughout this film are very well done and allow Pete to discuss such things as the Libertines break up which shows the emotional part of his personality. Overall if you are a fan of the Libertines, Babyshambles or just Doherty himself this film is worth the money.

Doesn't quite satisfy 30 Jun. 2006
By Simone Horn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was worrried that this film would be just one more piece of media vilifying Pete Doherty. Instead it doesn't go into enough depth about his drug abuse. I can see why Carl Barat called Babyshambles "Pete's denial band." They don't address that he has put himself into a life threatening situation, and instead blame the tabloids for the majority of his problems. I wish the filmmaker had been able to interview people like Carl who could've given the film a more balanced feel. That said, I gave it 3 stars because it is the only thing I've been able to find that doesn't treat Pete as a big joke. At least the filmmaker acknowledges that to many many people Pete is a hero, and a truly gifted artist. But for a film that claims to reveal the true Pete Doherty, it falls short.

As for the person who gave the film 1 star, it sort of seems like you didn't actually watch it. And I wonder if you have ever even heard any of The Libertines or Babyshambles albums? I am also a "snarky American" but that hasn't stopped me from recognizing the genius that Pete is capable of.
It focuses too much on Pete's drug problems 23 Oct. 2012
By victor f - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This documentary was made by a British guy who managed to interview some of Pete's former band mates and tell accurate stories about him, but has focused way too much on Pete's addictions and drug problems, so it's quite a depressing DVD. I thought it should have focused more on Pete's life story, his dreams before being famous, meeting Carl and forming the Libertines, then the Shambles etc, but it does not really do that. Anyways, if you're a fan of Pete you should definitely buy it.

A Rough Beast - thinnish and lacking the boys in the band. 2 Oct. 2007
By Jan Knightley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I think the makers got some access and then got rejected. Not good for Libertines fans, but interesting for us who still like Pete's other things he did (since the tragic break up of a great band.) Pretty much no Libertines footage. Hardly any of Carl Barat. Pete is great though when he is not too far away.
