GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD
Directed by cinematic legend Martin Scorcese, this epic documentary tells the story of the "quiet" Beatle using talking heads with everyone that was close to him and amazing archive footage. Harrison's amazing life is laid bare and it allows us to see what a fantastic human being he was throughout his life.
MISSION TO LARS
This moving but ultimately uplifting documentary tells the story of Tom Spicer, who suffers from Fragile X Syndrome and lives in a care home in Devon, and his brother and sister's mission to have Tom meet his hero Lars Ulrich at a Metallica concert in California in 2009.
THE BALLAD OF MOTT THE HOOPLE
This comprehensive documentary features interviews with the band members as well as Roger Taylor (Queen) and Mick Jones (The Clash) amongst others. Documenting the band's formation – with the help of Island Records eccentric, genius producer Guy Stevens – their early, pre-punk, riotous gigs which saw them banned from venues in the UK, to their sold-out five nights on Broadway.
THE MAKING OF WISH YOU WERE HERE
The story of Pink Floyd's "other" classic album is told via new interviews with the surviving members of the band and the various people that helped make it, including stunt artist Ronnie Rondell who is the burning man from the cover art. Each of the album's tracks is deconstructed from the original tapes giving a detailed portrayal of a band in full creative flow.
ROCK OF AGES
The movie version of the hugely successful Broadway musical is a ridiculous romp / tribute to the halcyon days of the Sunset Strip featuring hair metal covers of some of the 80s' biggest rock hits. Oh, and it stars Tom Cruise.
ROLLING STONES: SOME GIRLS - LIVE IN TEXAS '78
A full concert performance from one of the Stones' largely overlooked eras of excellence. On the back of their best album in half a decade, the Stones landed in Texas to perform a pretty stripped back set of classics. It's raw and ragged but oh-so brilliant and one of the best Stones live releases to date.
SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN
Essentially a mystery / detective film, Searching For Sugar Man tells the story of how a South African journalist and record shop owner sought out the truth behind the apparent "death" of obscure US folk singer Rodriguez, who had - without his knowledge - released one of the biggest and most important albums in South African history.
