Everything has a time and place and 'The Body' had a time and it was 1970, for this documentary taking the human life from Birth to Death there is some ground breaking film making but all too often this really does not work with what we have seen and can see today.
That is not to say this does not have its merits It is carefully thought out, and planned, and well filmed.
The film transfer is also very well done though it is a bit grainy in places this is as much down to the film used than the transfer. What most attracted me to this though was the fact that the background music formed part of Roger Waters first solo album, this is where it gets interesting, as the original album was not much over thirty minutes long while the film is considerably longer. The sound track then is mainly talking heads style speech, and bodily noises, which is consistent with the original release i.e. its aged a bit. A further complain would be that the soundtrack is Dolby Digital rather that LPCM, the Dolby encoding sucking the top end off the sound and giving it a slightly woolly sound, made even more apparent when you choose the extras (38 minutes of soundtrack, and a slightly different mix of the music from the album of the same name (also available on Amazon)) and get the sound track montage in this horrible Dolby sound rather than CD or even 96/24 DVD quality.

Complaints aside fans of Floyd will probably want this and it is quite an interesting historical artefact. Mixed feelings overall not essential but good fun non the less, I can see this being pulled out to watch more than once or twice.

To be honest as a life long Pink Floyd and Roger Waters fan I only really bought this for the soundtrack. And and Pink Floyd and Roger Waters fan needs to buy this, seriously they do, because -all the tracks on the DVD are different (albeit only slightly) to the LP version. THe sounds quality is very good too.
..oh and the film is very interesting too!

Rather cringy and now quite out-dated. It has very minimal Roger Water input. It may appeal more to ex-flower-power people from that era.

Roger Waters and Ron Geesin being experimental. Refreshing gentle and funny. Not a huge film or soundtrack but an interesting project

Good material what Simon Cowel and his Idol industry somehow supplanted by rubbish .
