Marianne Faithfull Dreaming My Dreams (Eagle Vision Classics)


Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: D Film: B



Discovered by the manager of The Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithfull became an iconic figure (self-destructive and all) in the British music scene and even had a few hit records in the many peaks and valleys that almost destroyed her. Marianne Faithfull Dreaming My Dreams is a new hour-long documentary examination of her legend, survival, experiences and comeback in this new DVD release of the TV broadcast.


Archival footage, extensive interviews (especially with her) and the revealing of some very painful personal moments add up to an amazing examination of her career and life, all the way back up to her comeback hit Broken English in the 1980s, now considered among her very best work. The program is very good at capturing it all and if you want to really learn about the singer, this is the program to try first.


The 1.33 X 1 image is soft at times, but the quality is more often good than bad, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is adequate, though PCM would have been preferred. Stills are the only extras, but there are not enough.
