Brian Eno - 1971-1977: The Man Who Fell To Earth

   (1 review)

Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno?Brian to his friends, Eno to the rest of us?defies easy categorization. Musician, composer, record producer, music theorist, singer and visual artist covers some of what he does, but he's probably best known for his early work with Roxy Music, his production duties for U2 and Coldplay, and as one of the principal innovators of ambient music. But however he's pigeon-holed, this remarkable visionary remains amongst the most influential individuals to have ever worked in the music industry. BRIAN ENO: THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH 1971?1977 explores his life, career and music between those titular years?the period that some view as his golden age, and others as just one great era in a long and very eclectic career.

As an unofficial documentary, this film lacks the kind of first hand accounts I would prefer to see. What it lacks in celebrity accounts. It does make up for with a lot of historical details of ENO's early years. From his Art School days to Roxy and finally off on his own. I would have liked to see more focus on the music than ENO, the personality. Still worth seeing for fans of ENO's early band years featuring albums "Here Come the Warm Jets" and "Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy".
