Well documented unbiased account of the Big O
8 January 2007 | by kevins-20See all my reviews

This is a remarkable DVD that manages to capture much of the life and times of Roy Orbison in such a way that does credit to it's creators. The stories and filming of well known muso's and management make this a brilliant documentary as well as a way to get to know Roy from different angles. Having read the biography of Roy ('Dark Star')I now have a more complete picture as well as a greater respect for some of those that knew and worked with Roy in this film's depiction. I have spent a lot of time researching Roy's early years and frustrations that he experienced in the 50's - this film manages to concentrate on the later years which complete the lifetime career of a unique talent from a unique person. Well done for a job well done.
