RockmanRECORD COLLECTOR 494 --
I'm just (minutes) back from seeing 'Amazing Grace' on a big screeen with a great sound system. It's good, but a slight disappointment. The original filming must have been absolutely a shambles so to have produced anything watchable from the pile of mess is a huge credit to the bloke who did it.
It's good throughout, with a few great moments. The perceived (by the congregation) brilliance of her version of 'Amazing Grace' passed me by totally. The audience were getting quite hysterical with joy and I was really wondering why.
There's a few shots of Mick, a few of Charlie, and even a couple of Stu! Makes it worth seeing just for Stu!
I spotted at least one song title in the credits that wasn't shown in the film - will have to check the DVD to see if it's longer.
'Amazing Grace' is actually on general release in Australia, but you have to look quite hard to find it. Hoyts and others are showing it.
