A Film About Progress
on 23 November 2010
When Robbie Wiliams returned to Take That and they set about recording a new album (the now record-breaking 'Progress') they had two young documentary-makers filming them, in the studio and out of it, in the process of writing, recording, laughing, arguing, reflecting, crying, breaking down and making up that brought the album and the new line-up together.
Any fan will tell you that watching Take That together is always a joy and there are some brilliant moments here, as well as a rawness and honesty that one rarely if ever sees from other groups about how they really feel about each other, their past, their present, everything. It's a genuinely fascinating fim that will have you laughing out loud and maybe even getting a bit choked up.
It was shown on TV a few weeks ago, but that was an edited down version that lost 40 minutes, including, in my opinion, some of the best bits. 5 million people watched and enjoyed it but, honestly, the full version is even better!
