The problem with a documentary like this is when do you end filming? I mean with something like The Beatles Anthology, it had an ending, because the band broke up, with the, George Harrison: Living in the Material World film, it had an ending, because George was dead, but Mark is alive and making new music, making a musical, and who know what else, so, when do you stop filming? A Life in Songs is a great film, but since it's release 10 years have gone by and Mark has made more albums. I still believe this film will be released, it is still scheduled for this year, so, if it is coming our this year, it would be good to see a trailer.

That's certainly a problem, however a pretty unprofessional and too "perfectionistic" point of view. A perfectionist will never release an album or a movie because there's always something to add or change... To be honest, that's another sign of Mark's process of falling down artistic-wise to me, I really hope the movie will be released this year no matter what. Whether Mark will do 10 more albums or no albums at all, it's frustrating to leave such projects on halt.

They could end with his last world tour.
You might get lucky, now and then

Yes, and that could be a good reason for a delay.
I'm still hopefully that the docu will soon see the light of the day.
This is all the heaven we've got right here where we are in our shangri-la.

Maybe ending with the last tour and the recording of the new cd after their last tour...

They bought the screens recordings from the O2 arena in London so I guess they had the intention to use it somehow...

Really?

Because there are no real reasons to give everybody a rain check and announce a movie that will be out in the next 5 years and no certain date. If they weren't sure, why then announce it at all, just make it silently in the background. Then, suddenly they want to add something extra, but that's, as was discussed before, is a process with no end. Even if Mark dies, you can still add chapters on his legacy, etc, you can go on and on forever. When you would stop working on such a movie? For how long you're going to polish it? So many questions...

And not only this movie, but the "Back In The Day" song was also announced, published on MK.com, and not released at all. Was it a flop? Was it recorded at all? Why they forgot about it? Why not bother to release it when there are a million ways to release it nowadays?

This is all true, but 'falling down artistic' these are too big and unjust words for me.

Still perfectly possible.

The Tom Petty documentary was released when they were still a going concern and that's probably the best music documentary I've ever seen.

But I said "a sign", not that this has happened or something, just another thing that I'm not in love with, and that MK is such an old-school guy overall, even when it comes to such things as the uncertainty of certain releases. If only somebody could ask him about it...

Still perfectly possible.

And yes! The end result matters the most, I hope it will be released and will be awesome.

Even if you are not a Tom Petty fan I would recommend watching the documentary.

It's directed by Peter Bogdanovich and it's amazing.

Seems like a great movie, here's the link on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runnin%27_Down_a_Dream_(film)

I'll watch it indeed! But it also makes me think that there's NO way that Henrik Hansen's documentary would be 4 hours long. My bet is that it won't be even more than 1 hour long. Tracker documentary was something about 5 minutes :lol

It's crazy that it's 4 hours but it doesn't seem that long.

I've watched it a few times and would like to see it again.

The Henrik Hansen film is going to be feature length, which can mean anything really, but in general you would think it means 90-120 mins.
