A well done documentary totally encompassing The Floyd's road, from Syd Barrett to their final and shocking reunion at Geldof's "Live Aid" in 2005. A considerable amount of time was devoted to 'Meddle', and little to 'Dark Side Of The Moon', or 'Wish You Were Here', disappointingly. Lots of intelligent commentary and insight, though. Waters and Gilmour briefly created a complementary magic; similarly mirroring a Lennon and McCartney-esque yin/yang synergy, that when separated, didn't, or couldn't, even attempt to approach that same rare level of creativity and harmony without the missing half. Destined inevitably to burn out through ego(s), jealousy, and money, I suppose.

David Gilmour (in '87, of Roger Waters' announcement that Floyd was disbanding, and that the Pink Floyd 'brand' was to be retired): "...No one is going to tell me that I'm not Pink Floyd and that we can't do Pink Floyd anymore... I mean, can you believe, could you imagine it? I can't imagine it."
