Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who

ORIGINAL TITLE:
Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who
Storbritannia/USA / 2008 / 120 min
DIRECTOR:
Paul Crowder & Murray Lerner
The best music documentary you'll see this year. From WWII to 2008, The Who have kept the volume up

The War was over, and the world of music was in dire need of fuzz, drugs and madness. Four young boys twisted trad-jazz, blues and pop, made great music, sold it in spectacular sleeves, performed it in exploding stageshows, and turned it into horrible operas. And had great fun all the way. AMAZING JOURNEY is both a great film and a great story, so don't miss it.

Paul Crowder & Murray Lerner

Making his name as an editor rather than director, Paul Crowder has worked on such critically acclaimed films as DOGTOWN AND THE Z-BOYS and RIDING GIANTS. The agility with which AMAZING JOURNEY floats between styles and genres owes much to Crowder's background. Murray Lerner has previously directed documentaries and concert movies with Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Miles Davis, as well as MESSAGE OF LOVE: THE ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL.
