Editorial Reviews

Musician, composer, producer, music theorist, singer and visual artist; probably best known for his early work with Roxy Music, his production duties for U2 & Coldplay, and as one of the principal innovators of ambient music. This documentary film - the first ever about Eno - explores his life, career and music between the years 1971 & 1977, the period that some view as his golden age. Featuring numerous exclusive interviews, contributions from a range of musicians, writers, collaborators and friends - plus performance and studio film and an abundance of the most exceptional music ever created

[BRIAN ENO (1971-1976) THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH - Screen Format 4:3] An incredible in-depth documentary chronicling Eno's most prolific and experimental years and output, from pre-Roxy Music artschool days to collaborations with Robert Fripp, Phil Manzanera, John Cale, Nico, Cluster, Portsmouth Symphonia, 801,Gavin Bryars, David Toop, Harold Budd, Ambient music and of course, David Bowie. No musical stone is left unturned during this remarkable period of productivity in Eno's continuing career and, though this may be an unsanctioned chronicle (something I'm usually adverse to and highly skeptical of), it could only have been better if the man himself was involved. It's a collection of photos, videos, and interviews with writers Eric Tamm (who wrote bios on both Fripp and Eno), Mark Prendergast (The Ambient Century), Geeta Gayal (Another Green World), David Sheppard (On Some Faraway Beach - The Life and Times of Brian Eno), Johnny Rogan (an eccentric, notable biographer of many works), as well as prominent music critics Robert Christgau and Simon Reynolds, musicians Lloyd Watson, David Toop, Percy Jones, John Hassell, Bryan Turrington, Chris Spedding , David O'List and Rodelius. These are people who have been close to the 'nerve net' of focus here and not hangers-on, former-but-now-irate bedmates and rumor propagators. It's a fairly meticulous examination that clocks in at well over 2 ½ hours, and never gets boring, bland, too analytical or critical. It's thoroughly entertaining on all counts.

Several reviewers here have taken issue that Eno has no involvement and that there's no newly unearthed music to be found, even that some of the details are incorrect (which is entirely untrue) - didn't they know this was an unauthorized biography?

About time someone gave a look at one of the true innovators of modern music, Brian Eno. Although not authorized by Eno, and only featuring him in interviews a few times, this look at his life and work is fascinating and long overdue.

This disc contains, in order of quantity:

- endless blathering by music critics and "social commentators," (who, with the exception of Eric Tamm, are irritating and too often incorrect)

- playback of Eno's commonly available studio recordings with unexplained (and frequently inexplicable) video clips

- portentious narration that provides the few laugh moments in the film

- a few interesting interviews with musicians who've worked with Eno (particulary Hans Joachim Roedelius)

- a few staggeringly bad interviews with musicians who've worked with Eno (particularly Lloyd Watson)

- a SMALL AMOUNT of Eno footage from the 1970s, some clips of which are repeated close to a dozen times

This disc does not contain, in any quantity:

- Interviews with Eno (save for about 30 seconds of him talking about Roxy Music)

- Interviews with any of his collaborators (save for a very brief clip with Jon Hassell)

- Music you haven't heard before

- Video you haven't seen before

- Information you didn't know before (except for the stuff that's wrong)

- Experts you want to hear from

Sometimes unauthorized documentaries are incisive portraits of difficult people who didn't want the truth told about themselves. Sometimes they are simply half-assed jobs suffering from a lack of access to the subject. This is the latter.

Beginning with his involvement in Roxy Music, this film takes the Eno story as far as his Before and After Science album. The depth and scope in which his music is examined is staggering. Featuring an array of contributors including band mates and collaborators (Roxy guitarist David O'List, Hans Joachim Roedelius of Harmonia amongst many others) and musical academics offering a real insight into the technical innovations for which Eno is famed. Robert Rich and David Toop are on hand to shed light on Brian's involvement with the modern classical scene via his Obscure Records imprint, while renowned music journalists such as Simon Reynolds and Robert Christgau place the events in a wider context.
The film itself is beautifully put together and interspersed with an abundance of its subject's music. The shear wealth of information and discussion about Brian's achievements in the early part of his career make this documentary invaluable to any fans of his, or indeed anybody with an interest in experimental and avant-garde music. I can't wait for the next instalment!

While watching this earnest doc about the legendary Brian Eno I wondered why the filmmakers were unable to interview the man himself. They clearly had access to the foremost experts on Eno, but Eno is seen only once in interview, and of his many collaborators only the most obscure sat for interviews (no Bowie, no Byrne). So, while much of the information shared seems accurate enough, I can't help but think that it was a missed opportunity to get new insight into his working methods and philosophy. That said, if you're new to Eno and don't want to read the various books about him and his music, this film offers a fairly concise portrait of him during his most protean period and relies heavily on the insights of the authors of those books.
