Editorial Reviews

This is a personal journey film about singer/songwriter John Mellencamp. It was made during his summer 2009 tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson; Mellencamp also recorded his new album in three historical locations during the month and a half tour. The story is told through the eyes of the father/son film making team of Kurt and Ian Markus, neither of whom had ever made a film before. The entire 90-minute film is shot on super 8, to stunning effect. This is not a retrospective film with interviews. It is of the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Footage May 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this before a concert of Mellencamp's can't say I saw and heard every second but most of it like 90% i saw...the footage of the road is great, the places he recorded most notably Robert Johnson's hotel room were interesting to see, some old church think it was in memphis...obviously the songs were from his newest album definitely has a retro feel to americana post war but more like mid-50s feel...i will buy this when it's released and i'd recommend anyone who is a fan of john mellencamp will do the same...i can vouch that this is a very worthwhile release and is not filler or just something to pick up...it's a really good piece of art/entertainment/film/music however you want to classify this...if anything it will enhance the listening experience of the latest album and i will say it's a dvd you'll probably watch multiple times rather than just once because the scenery of cities and landscape is nice to see...you will see the places he actually recorded the songs and he did in mostly landmark places with retro recording equipment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! July 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love everything about this DVD. It is really well done. Maybe its the artsy side in me, but I love the way it was filmed and narrated. Can't wait to watch it again. If you are a Mellencamp fan like me, this is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome April 25, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I enjoyed this film that came on before John came out on stage. the film was filmed with a 8 mm Camera that looks pretty cool. It shows footage of him when he was on tour with bob dylan in 2009, and the making of his new album. alot of the film is in black and white, but the film rocks. I'll be buying it. I do recomend any Mellencamp fan to buy it if they havent seen it.

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of money February 24, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wanted a DVD of Mellencamp singing his songs. It is rare to see him on DVD. Instead this is a very rough (and amateurish) DVD about someone traveling with him. Way too much about the videographer and not enough singing. I suppose if you are a diehard fan that wants to see and own anything about Mellencamp, you might be interested. Otherwise save your money to go see him in person!

1.0 out of 5 stars Could put Nyquil out of business.... November 2, 2013
Format:DVD
If you have insomnia or sleeping issues in general I highly recommend the documentary on John Mellencamp called "It's About You". Absolutely one of the worst documentaries I have ever suffered through. It is so bad I would find more enjoyment in watching ice melt on a table. So terrible. SO BORING. Calling it horrible would be a compliment. Just f'ing terrible...but it will put you to sleep QUICK so if that is your problem then by all means go watch it. John Mellencamp really should have said "NO WAY IN HELL IS THIS CRAP GETTING RELEASED WITH MY NAME ON IT", it's just so so so so sooooooooooo bad. Really bad. Put this thing out of its misery and take it out of print. GARBAGE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Documentary! October 1, 2012
By Coreyj
Format:Blu-ray
I have to agree with the other reviewers on here and say i liked this dvd very much. I just cannot complian about anything. The footage is great, the music is great, and the performances are as close to being there as it gets. I know, I saw John and Willie and Dylan on this tour. The later two are not in the film but there is plenty of other stuff to keep you entertained. Awesome! Definately recomended.John Mellencamp: It's About You [Blu-ray]
