| Not my fav musical doc on a rock band
In comparisons to such documentaries about musical artist like Nas, Time is illmatic and I Can't stand loosing you, which is about the Police, I found this movie uninspiring. The inspiring ones usually make me what to listen to their music all day long, and I have the Who's records on my iPhone, so I was ready. This doc did not do this for me.

In all fairness, the film was more about Two filmmakers names Kit Lambert and Chris Tramp who began managing the Who as a way to make a documentary of the band. Yet, I'm still left with the same unspring feeling as I'm a huge fan of films and the idea that the Who was practically created as a film project seem right up my alley.

The documentary is too self-serving. I know that seems a little Ironic to say, but I've seen docs that praise Keith Moon as a legendary Drummer and barely mentions John Entwistle (how unfortunate to be a great musician who got to live to old age). Pete Townsend attempted to tell us how awesome John was to the band, but it wasn't enough, and this goes for anyone vital to the band (like Keith) who is not alive to tell their own story (In defense the people getting interviewed seem unapologetic about their own self- worth). It's a little uneven.

So while well crafted, Lambert and Stamp seems to show me that one of the most interesting bands in the world has a very uninteresting origin story. I just prefer to listen to the music.
