Only about 5 tracks have proper film of the band despite it being apparent that film of other tracks were available to the DVD makers. Even then the idiot editing this chose to fade out "Sultans of Swing" at the beginning of the final solo - a musical crime! Other tracks were either visually messed about with, played over crummy modern "dance Routines" or even worse, cartoon representations of the band or storyline. On the few decent filmed tracks the camera work was also lacking at times in choosing to show the wrong band member or just the face rather than the playing of their instrument. Dire Straits, as ever, were musically immaculate but you can get that from the CD. This DVD does them a great injustice. A bonus was a brief interview with Mark Knofler about each of the songs but for some reason it was in sound only! A serious let down!
