"Rattle and Hum is the name of both an album and a companion motion picture recorded by Irish rock band U2. Both were released in 1988. The album, which was made following the band's 1987 Joshua Tree Tour, is a mix of live recordings, covers, and new songs. To a greater extent than their previous album, The Joshua Tree, the band explore roots rock and experiment with incorporating influences from blues-rock, folk rock, and country music into their music. The film documents the band's Joshua Tree Tour of the United States and the band's experiences with American music. Although the album and motion picture were intended to represent the band paying tribute to rock legends, critics said that U2 were trying to place themselves amongst the ranks of these artists"--Wikipedia.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

For any U2 lover, this will be a treasure! Even when I thought I could not love this band anymore, I have found myself further inspired by their creativity and accomplishments.
