This is a melancholy trip inward to a very personal phase of Pink Floyd. More than 15-years on the band had achieved a rare pinnacle of success. That success always had the element of loss hovering. After the blockbuster Dark Side of the Moon record there was an intersection of tremendous pressures and changes. The record company, of course, wanted another bombastic sales juggernaut, but the band was searching for where to go and how to get there. There was a fatigue as well as lack of material. It was Roger Waters who gave the band a path. The sad loss of Sad Barrett had a lasting effect and it was time to explore that angle against the band's growing disillusionment of the entire music business machinery. This was a unifying thing members of Pink Floyd could all feel albeit in their own ways guided largely by Roger's hand and writing. David Gilmour rose up to work together with Roger crafting their best. Richard Wright used his long tenor of experience to underpin the dark atmosphere perfectly with Waters. Nick Mason's percussion was never better underneath it all. This one came from deep inside the members of the band and it had a personal resonance that was very different than DSOTM. In other words, a brilliant follow-up album that stood on it's own unique merits. No let down here and in no way riding on coattails. Brilliant. But this review is about this film and what makes it special is how it brings the viewer into the band's work on this amazing recording. Almost by some unexplainable coincidence Syd Barrett appears in the studio on the final mix day of Wish You Were Here. It provoked a strong coda to exactly what the band had been laboring over in jaw-dropping fashion. The film actually makes the viewer often as uneasy as the music evoking a real emotional response. This was an important album to the band and the fact it achieved such success in the market only strengthens this connection. I think it will be hard to now listen to the record ever again quite the same. Gone will be the casualness an oft listened to record often becomes. That says a lot for this film I'd say.
