Featuring 34 of their hits and new material, the Tim Wheeler-directed "Cuatro!" documents the 1 ½ years Green Day put into making its three latest albums "Uno!," "Dos!" and "Tre!," all of which were released in a span of just over two months in the fall of 2012. With performance and studio footage, Cuatro punctuates the creative process of a band that has been making meaningful music for 25 years.

This is by far, a must have for all Green Day fans. It will give you a whole new perspective on the albums and a new love for the band as a whole. It's amazing to see the process behind these monumental albums.
The fact that Green Day were making these new albums as they played shows actually IS a making of DVD. Instead of playing their usual arena crowds, they'd play small clubs and see what the reaction of the new songs were. You can see audience members holding up lyrics for the new songs in front of Billie, so you're actually seeing the process from the ground up seeing the band in a different light. Whereas the other 2 DVD's are concerts AFTER the millions of albums sold, these are short snippets of shows BEFORE the albums were even out.
You see Billie Joe in his little home studio recording demos on his computer...a "rough draft" so to speak of "missing you". You see him record his guitar, bass, and even drums. The next scene is him introducing it to the rest of the band and how it sounds, discussing the middle break where maybe Mike can have a little bass solo, and coming up with the idea "Hey that would be a great time for Tre to do a drum part" and then they have the band play the song all put together.
You see the band discussing the thought process behind the order of the songs and theme of the trilogy. You see the band worrying that if they allow cameras and recording devices to their small shows that their songs will be leaked.
The band discusses the mistakes they've made in the past and how they wanted to get back to just pure rock and roll.
I love this DVD and it is a true "making of" without too much documentary and without too much concert footage.
