    One one hand the story told in the second half of this documentary is much more dramatic and interesting (and still topical and unresolved) than the story told in the first half. Perhaps the first 45 mins should have been compressed into a 5 min montage so we could have gotten to the juicy stuff sooner. 

    Or maybe the first half is the whole story: Those who compete want to win. When others are cheating the temptation to join them…

    Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police


    The rise and demise of The Police as told through the lense of Andy Summers, the guitarist and probably lesser known of the three band members. 

    This is the sort of documentary that I could watch all day and all night and into the early hours of the morning and contemplate rewatching the next day.

    The story of his relationship with his wife and family, which is woven through, is heartbreaking. 

    I'd like to see more of his photography. What an awesome record and memory. I imagine him getting lost in that archive for days.

    96 mins is a long time to feel as lost as I found myself watching this.

    This film sounds amazing. Shut your eyes.
