"I feel pretty blessed really right now, when I see it, that most of us made it through that maze that is growing up in rock 'n' roll," he says. "And I think we've matured in a way that we're maybe better now, you know, maybe better musicians, and enjoying our craft more than we ever have. So I'm very lucky." Tom Petty

I found this four hour anthology of Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers on Sundance Channel. I immediately notified my best friend, and we watched unbelievably spellbound. This story of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers was directed by Peter Bogdanovich. He begins with the start of Tom Petty's life in Gainesville, Florida and ends with a 2006 commemoration concert of his thirtieth anniversary in music.

The entire story is told through home movies, television shows and rememberances in narrative form. Tom Petty does much of the narrative and this is his profession and musical life, after all. The list of friends, colleagues and those in the know who knew or played with Tom Petty is remarkable. It is a time line of the history of rock and music. Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, and Jeff Lynn along with Tom Petty join to form 'The Traveling Wilburys'. This remarkable group, to a one, votes this time in their lives as one of the most rewarding musical experiences. Stevie Nicks wants to join Tom Petty and his heartbreakers, but she is a woman and "this is a men's club" says Tom Petty. The sheer sense of Tom's persuasive personality in pursing his career in music is pure genius. Once he set down this path he never looked back. This was his life and what a life it has been.

This movie is about the music. There is some mention of marriage and Tom Petty's daughter is interviewed. Little personal information is shared.

This FOUR HOUR documentary is a must for all Tom Petty fans and honestly anyone weaned on late '70s early '80s Rock 'n' Roll. Spanning Petty's humble beginnings in Gainesville, Florida to the launch of his career in California to his battles with record labels and sleazy lawyers and his ultimate triumph, the documentary finally shows us Petty at the top of the rock heap alongside Jeff Lynn, Bob Dylan and George Harrison, the quintessential independent rocker/ musician/ songwriter. Shows Petty to be the ultimate self-sufficient iconoclast. Bogdanovich shares old reels of Petty's first band Mudcrutch and we see the evolution of a young idealistic kid with a chip on his shoulder transform (over a 30 year period) into a bona fide rock legend. Saw this on Sundance channel and bought the four disc box set which includes a soundtrack CD and the 30th anniversary concert in Gainesville. This documentary is overflowing with interviews, clips, personalities, history and a catalog of live performances. Worth every penny. Worth every second.

I extremely enjoyed this and I am not what you would call a die-hard Tom Petty fan. It just seems like growing up that Tom's music has always been there. I discovered Tom around the "Hard Promises" album via MTV videos and now that I think about, he has consistently released great music for 30 years. I have listened to the new album "Highway Companion" and I find it to be as good as anything I've heard from him.

What I did get from the movie is that Tom may be the most geniune rock & rollers ever. He knows what he wants and never lets up. Also the movie reinforced what I already believed: Mike Campbell is the most underrated guitarists ever. He may not be flashy but he can play just about anything. The same is true of Benmont Tench, both are incredible musicians. In fact, as you can see from lineup changes, without Mike & Ben the Heartbreakers sound is not complete.

Bottom line: Tom is one of the greatest American songwriters ever and watching this will confirm this!

The documentary got 100% on Rotten Tomatoes out of 5 reviews.

Nick Schager of Slant Magazine reviewed the documentary saying, "Employs a warm and leisurely, though never sluggish, pace that's upfront about Bogdanovich's intention to take his sweet time tackling every topic of relevant interest."

Ronnie Schreib of Variety, reviewed the documentary saying "A feast for Petty fans and a joyous confirmation of the vitality of the collective creative process."

Dan Lybarger, of eFilmCritic.com reviewed the documentary saying, "Peter Bogdanovich's new documentary about the life and career of Florida-born rocker Tom Petty runs nearly four hours and never fails to engage or entertain."

I would add my personal notes that this movie is very engaging and the 4 hour run length felt like an hour. The movie really holds your interest and time flew by.

The Blu-ray edition looks fantastic but is not a major upgrade over the regular DVD...EXCEPT for the sound quality which I thought was much better on the Blu-ray. Not that the DVD sound is bad.

It's Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. It rocks and tells a great story about a legendary band.

BUY IT!!!

I'd been waiting for this 2 set DVD to come out for months and it finally showed up. It's 4 hours of rock and roll history that focuses on one of the best, tightest, most talented and unpretentious bands ever. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Just saying it makes a fan smile but this documentary goes deep into the back story of the band and has extended interviews with all of the band members and many people associated with the Heartbreakers through the years.

It covers the whole period from the first days in Gainesville, FL through the latest album, "Highway Companion". There's plenty of excellent music but Mr. Petty is fully engaged from beginning to end and he is completely up front in relating the many highs and inevitable lows of the group he started 30 years ago with a dream of making a life as a full on rocker. He did it. And the Heartbreakers did it. Full on.

His songs are the soundtrack to a generation. If you want to know where those songs came from and how they came into being, watch "Runnin' Down a Dream". It's all here and my compliments to Mr. Bogdanovich as he made a great, complete documentary that flows smoothly. But I was still wishing for a third 2 hour disc when I finished watching all there was. It's a great story.
