A nice way to round things off....,
This review is from: No Distance Left To Run [DVD]  (DVD)
The film is a documentary of the career of blur. Being a long time blur fan, it felt like an ideal way to tie the whole thing off and move us all on. The interviews with all 4 members of the band are revealing, and interesting. The footage is scattered between the earlier years on and off stage, and the more recent gigs in 2009.
The film falls down slightly, a lot of the footage has been seen before in the starshaped video, and the unseen clips of the band from the past are very brief. It would have benefitted from including more older clips that were shelved from the unreleased 'b roads' documentary. Also, the interviews dont really inform fans of anything different or new. ie we know beetlebum was about heroin, we are well aware of graham's alcohol problem... it would have been nice for the members of the band to go in to more depth about these more serious situations in blurs career.
That said, the film is a moving tribute to a varied and turbulent career, which at some point we were probably all part of. An absolute must for Blur fans.
