Director: Robin Mahoney
Back in 1996 Glastonbury The Movie was a landmark documentary that captured the sight, sounds and feel of the Glastonbury Festival at that time.
Now, nearly two decades later, Mahoney has returned to the footage that he shot to re-make the movie for a brand new audience.
This is not a movie about the history of Glastobury or it's cultural significance instead it is a movie about being there and what that meant to fans.
There is something totally mesmerising about this film because watching it you feel like you could be back in the seventies but it is only when you see the likes of The Verve on the screen do you realise that you are in the nineties.
The major change to the movie this time around is the addition of the split screen, which works incredibly well, so not only are we treated to some great musical performances from the likes of The Verve and The Lemonheads, but you still get the feel of what it was like to be in the audience.
To be able to look at the old-school festival format before it became a slick televised event is incredibly fascinating and there is a real charm to it as Mahoney gets amongst the crowds and the people that were there.
It is not very often that a documentary truly captures the vibe and the feel of live music and the appreciation that the crowd really had for it as this movie has done.
There is a real charm to Glastonbury The Movie (In Flashback) as it depicts a time when the festival was truly music and the energy of the crowd.
Glastonbury The Movie was a triumph when it was first released but with the new footage, improved sound and the inclusion of the split screen has made this movie an even greater success.
