Synopsis by Nathan Southern

Pink Floyd -- arguably the foremost supergroup of '70s progressive art rock and psychedelia -- receives its most comprehensive video overview of all time in Pink Floyd: Rock Review. This independently made and edited documentary weaves together recordings of 21 Floyd groundbreakers, including "See Emily Play," "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun," "Cymbeline," "Atom Heart Mother," and "Another Brick in the Wall" draws on preciously rare and unseen archival footage of the band in concert; and works in incisive interviews with key music critics and historians, to explore the legend that is Pink Floyd and assess the band's trajectory, legacy, and industry-revolutionizing sound, from the golden age of Syd Barrett and Roger Waters through Floyd's more recent studio re-creations and stadium appearances. This film is an astonishing act of research -- a labor of love created by obvious devotees of the band -- and an absolute necessity for everyone from Floyd's casual admirers to die-hard Floyd addicts.
