The love we fake?

At the end of this movie there was one outstanding question - why? Why make this movie in the first place and why wait 10 years to release it? It wasn't really clear what this was all about - a PR vehicle for Paul McCartney - an homage to vanity - an advert for his music career which ended 30 years ago? The handheld fly-on-the-wall treatment was irritating - there was no narrative which led to the nihilistic mood of the piece. There were lots of contradictions - McCartney saying he was a man of the people and then trying to get as far away from them as quickly as possible every time he was put in a position to meet them - McCartney telling Clapton how to play his guitar solo and then saying, 'I don't need to tell you what to do' and Clapton replying glumly, 'No'. McCartney's stories never seemed to add up and it was never really clear what his role in this concert was. Was he the organiser? Was he just the main act? Was he just a bit player? Who knows?

"The Love We Make" takes us back to the horror of 9/11, the loss of innocence and focuses on the resilience of the human spirit to come together and unite around a brighter future. Paul McCartnery is the perfect host, he invites the viewer into his world and generously shares it with us., This film is a MUST SEE!!!

A real Spirit Lifter in many ways.

I laughed and cryed. It brought back a lot of feelings of that dark time in our lives, but the music really helped to make me feel better and lift my "spirit". It was a good time for the film to come out as we are in the tenth anniversary of the horror of that day. Quite revealing. It was also nice to see a HUMOROUS side to Paul that one does not normally get a chance to see. Thank you Paul for sharing the clips from the concert for those of us who were unable to attend.
