2 stars Camel - Curriculum Vitae (2003)

It's nice to have seen a doc about the history of this amazing band. It's interesting to get an inside view by (ex-)members telling their stories. The movie tells the story from the beginning of the band untill the beginning of the 21th century. The footage presented is nice, but there are no complete songs. The production of the doc is good and the questions of the interviewers are interesting.

But what do you do with your dvd if you've seen this doc once, perhaps twice if you really want to suck up the information? This document would have been more important if all complete songs from the footage used was presented as an extra. The track-listing would have been quite interesting and the historical value big. But sadly this is only a doc with short parts of songs.

Conclusion. This is for fans of the band. An interesting film, but it has no replay-value. Two stars, a good document for fans. It did gave me a good feeling afterwards, knowing these records you have in your collection all have a history of lot's of people involved with own stories. Music is so much more then only sound... it's an enterprise.
