Editorial Reviews

The most successful band to emerge from the Canadian rock explosion of the early 1970s, Rush would go on to become one of that nation's biggest entertainment exports. A trio of musical polymaths who cut a fiercely independent, sometimes controversial path through various musical styles to forge a distinctive, evolving sound that was incomparable to that of any of their contemporaries, this hugely influential group have flourished across a forty-plus year career. This film traces the history of Rush from the bar rooms of Toronto in the late 1960s to the world's largest arenas in the late 70s and early 1980s, by which time they were amongst the biggest bands on the planet. Through a stunning combination of rare and classic footage, the testimony of friends, colleagues and those who worked with the group across the years, plus exclusive and archive interviews and a host of other features, this programme makes the very unique history of Rush come alive in a manner previously undocumented.

As in "Geddy Lee said....." "I disagree...." You can't disagree with the genius that made the music.

Being a huge Rush fan, I'll watch anything about the band that comes down the pike. And I knew I was in trouble when the opening salvo of low resolution, vintage stills were accompanied by non-Rush music. When a documentary on a band has little or no music from that band featured in the documentary, that's your first clue the documentary in question is not sanctioned by the band.

What we have here is essentially a collection of previously recorded interviews and music videos ripped from youtube intertwined with B and C level Rush engineers/critics/biographers; the credibility of which should immediately be called into question when the bulk of them don't know how to pronounce Neil Peart's last name. Heads up: its "Peeert," like "ear."

Sadly, the documentary ultimately fails because the viewer doesn't learn anything new about the band or its music.

Having read a lot of reviews already here about this DVD, I thought it worthwhile to go to the trouble of writing my own just to help clear some fog some folks may be having about this DVD, as there seems to be mixed views about it...

1st. Should you already own " Beyond the Lighted Stage", this DVD will augment the over-all experience of the history of RUSH, especially if you thought that the discussions held on each album passed too quickly on the "Lighted Stage" DVD. This one offers more time time to realize & appraise each album, even if the reviews themselves are similar in outcome. For example, the album " A Farewell to Kings" is hardly mentioned at all on the Lighted Stage DVD, so I very much welcomed the appraisal found here for what is one of RUSH's best records ever ! So missing pieces to the RUSH puzzle are collected & presented on this baby folks.

2nd. The fact that interview footage "of the time" is used rather than "in the present" eliminates "hind-sight", so a more accurate appraisal by the band is provided at the time of a particular records release, (or with interviews back in the 1990's), so it's interesting to hear their thoughts / opinions about matters earlier in time.

3rd. Being an independent production also means that perhaps a more evenly balanced point-of-view results, as the editing process remains independent from the band & managers etc. You get warts & all, so the "truth" or accuracy of events is more easy to identify.

The video and audio on my disc kept going in and out of sync. Most of the video is available already on Youtube, although the interviews can be nice at times. There is not so much actual Rush music available and there are lots of zoom ins and zoom outs on still photos that long time fans have long ago seen. If the disc worked it would be worth perhaps half the set retail price. Nice that it is long, if only the disc played properly.

Do not make the mistake of buying this utter drek - you'll just be putting money in someone else's pocket at the expense of the members of Rush.

This documentary is just a bunch of no-name talking heads, freely available trailers & publicity shots, using some ridiculous mockery of Rush's music - not their own music since the producers did not want to expend any money to actually purchase any rights to use Rush's own music.

This is another bandwagon jumper, trying to cash in on Rush's recent popularity. It's crap, and nothing but crap. About the only good thing I can say about it, is at least it's not attacking Rush, like most of the industry did for decades, until all of a sudden they're now popular and everyone wants a piece of them.

Do yourself a favor, if you don't already have it, get the real documentary of Rush, found here:Rush - Beyond the Lighted Stage [2 DVD]

Don't waste your money enriching the producers of this crap. Support the band, buy their stuff.

Not the band, but the documentary maker.... really cheap production with not one band interview I've not yet seen. Most of the pics I've seen as well. The menu is very basic, graphics bad, and the background music highly annoying. The only item of interest is Paul Northfield's commentary.

What SHOULD have been done was the following..
Interview family or friends.
Interview road crew. One member is interviewed only and briefly.
Interview manufacturers and endorsement companies.
Interview agents, promoters, management.
Interview band or bands whom worked with Rush.
But the above was not done.

There's nothing new here and I'd compare this to a bad movie sequel.. I'm not trying to showboat here....this is really a poorly done documentary.

There does appear to be a discrepancy in reviews here but it would appear that those that write it off with little actual intelligent critique seem to largely dislike the fact that the film isn't authorised by the band. But actually that can be a plus and this film works well as a complimentary piece to the Clockwork DVD. The 2 in tandem work as an excellent library of Rush footage, interviews and contributions.
