5 stars This is the greatest video ever recorded by Pink Floyd. Especially the Directors cut.

First of all, the whole idea was nice... playing their famous progressive rock epics in the middle of an empty Amphitheater. The scenery really adds to the music, and the film's cuts to things such as the molten lava of Icelandic volcanoes and steaming geysers goes totally with the music.

Pink Floyd also picked their best songs to play for this occasion. Among them are the epics Echoes, A Saucerful of Secrets, Careful with that Axe Eugene, Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, One of These Days, etc. These songs are among the best of the Floyd's progressive relics before its mainstream exposure with Dark Side of the Moon. The live versions always add something spectacular to them, and it's always a pleasure to watch. The stuff recorded in the studio is exaggerated to a point where you really see the genius is such pieces of art.

The Director's cut also features CGI synced with the music perfectly, as well as interviews with the band members that are often humourous, and footage of them recording Dark Side of the Moon.

This is, in my opinion, better to watch than the Wall. The Wall is more of a movie to watch, but if you're about the progressive music, Live at Pompeii is way better, and it is simply amazing. Buy it!
