| An extremely well done documentary about Queen.
Queen still is a huge band, and with the recent movie Bohemian Rhapsody their popularity is once again sky high.

This documentary is a great starting point for fans who only have heard the music but were too late to the party to see Freddie Mercury live (as most of us nowadays are). As a fan of queen from the tender age of 10 (29 now) I'm delighted to say that the insight they've given in this documentary is great.

The pacing is perfect, the editing really well done. Interviews with multiple people are blended into one big coherent story without ever resorting to cheap tricks. Archive footage combined with the interview with John Deacon and Roger Taylor gives you a sense at how big Queen was.

Of course they skip certain parts or go through some years too quickly, but with a running time of two hours you can't expect them to cover everything. As I starting musician myself I would've loved to hear more about how they started. Within minutes they're touring Europe and the USA. But that's a personal preference only, and it doesn't hurt the documentary in any way.

So all in all, this is one of the best documentaries I've seen in a while. The focus of the makers was clear from the get go (following Queen from start to end, focusing on the band as a whole) and they never strayed from their subject one bit.

A very very good documentary.
