5 stars A superb concert movie, if there ever was one. With excellent picture and sound quality (hey, this is in original from 1972!) Pink Floyd present us a real masterpiece in a unique form. In the stunning theatre of Pompeii the band shows, why they are such big legends under the sun in our sunset. Director Adrien Maben explains in the interview how it came to "Live At Pompeii" and the fact, why he wanted Pink Floyd for that experiment. Simply he got a vision, about this majestic scenery in the theatre of Pompeii and a band, that was able to give this special atmosphere the fitting music to deliver a great concert film, which also was about to reach the cinemas.

There are two different full versions of the film on the "Director's Cut" I own. You got the original live concert and a extended version with additional interviews with the band, which come to place between the songs. Also you'll see in the extended version some different sceneries and some bonus material, like the recording of some material for the "Dark Side Of The Moon" record. "Us And Them" and "Brain Damage" are played live in the studio. The musicians answer some interestening questions to the band history to this point, and give a statement how it was with Syd Barrett.

This is a highly recommended DVD for Pink Floyd fans. You really should like the earlier material of PF to enjoy this concert film in all of it's pride. If you do, you'll get a masterpiece, specially the both "Echoes" parts are unbelievable intense. I've enjoyed this DVD Director's Cut very much and will watch it again, that is sure. It's really that great - Essential and a masterpiece indeed!
