3 stars This is a very thorough look at the Who including lots of early videos and a candid yet never gratuitous look at their on and off-stage trials and triumphs. The amount of early Who and pre-Who footage is amazing. Many times in this DVD when someone is relating a story of a performance there will be a video of that incident. My favorite was seeing Daltrey walk off stage while the other members played an amphetamine fueled free jam session.

On a musical level this film mostly deals with their three rock operas. I think the feeling is that these three ambitious pieces show the most about who these four guys were and the odd dynamic they shared. It is interesting to hear how Daltrey asked Pete if he could "become Tommy" while they were working out that complicated narrative. The result is a real breakthrough for Daltrey as a performer.

Although the film avoids unnecessary muck-raking they do not shy away from sensitive subjects such as drug use, Entwistle's debts and the tragic concert in Cincinnati. Towards the end of the film only Pete and Roger are left and it is obvious what a heavy toll the rock lifestyle can take on a person, yet these two came through these experiences as better friends and stronger individuals.
