The Kids Are Alright

Posted by martinteller on July 7, 2005

I was a really really big fan of The Who for a long time, but somehow I never watched this film (or if I did, I’ve forgotten it… a few segments did seem familiar though).  There’s not much rhyme or reason to the construction of this movie, it’s all interviews, TV appearances, promotional films and live performances thrown together.  Only occasionally will there be some thematic link between one piece and the next.  The Who was an exciting band with a sense of humor, so most of the material is golden.  But why wasn’t there anything from my favorite album, Quadrophenia?  9+ minutes of “Won’t Get Fooled Again” (one of their most overrated songs) and not one second of “Love Reign O’er Me”?  Bah.  Rating: 7
