This review is from: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - High Grass Dogs: Live from the Fillmore (DVD)
Tom Petty is one of the best ever. People leave his shows awestruck. A film of a concert should make you feel as if you were there, as part of the audience. It should not make you feel as though your head were a ping pong ball being bounced about at two-second intervals by nine different cameramen, none of whom seem to be able to get a decent view. Why oh why must the filmmakers try to upstage the band when they are making these things? It never, ever works. To the powers that be: Please, please, please release Tom Petty's Pack Up The Plantation film on DVD. It is a wonderful perfomance and a much better film than this one. And next time you get ready to film a concert, watch The Last Waltz to get an idea of how it should be done.
