4.0 out of 5 stars This is a film about a concert, not of a concert, 13 Mar. 2013
This review is from: The Love We Make [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
This is a film about a concert, not of a concert. It shows how Paul McCartney was instrumental in bringing together many of the biggest names of the day for a good cause. The music itself looks to be good - but it is shown only in snippets, to give a flavour for what went on that night.

It's a 'watch it once' film ... massive fan though I am of Paul McCartney, I can't see myself returning to this again and again. It's interesting, even absorbing in places and it treads very carefully so that the emphasis is always, and successfully, on Paul's genuine motivation to do something for the heroes of 9/11.

It is mainly in black and white - I think to emphasise that this is not meant to be a glossy 'look what I did, see how clever I am' film, but more of a documentary about how pop stars can use their talents to help others. It certainly left me thinking 'well done, Paul: that was good.' It most certainly does not fall into the trap of exploiting the tragic events of 9/11.

Outstanding? No ... nor is it meant to be. This is a sober, low-key documentary.

Very good? Yes, it is worth watching ... but don't expect to play it over and over again. As an entertainment, it probably falls somewhere between three and four stars. But because it does exactly what it sets out to do, I'll mark it up rather than down - four stars.
