“Choosing the kind of lie you want to tell is actually the creative art of photography. And there are few better and more interesting liars than Anton.” – Brian Eno
Bono, Michael Stipe, Brandon Flowers, Gavin Friday, Guggi, Dave Gahan and others tell the story of Anton Corbijn, “the ultimate insider who now finds himself outside the Hollywood system” in Shadow Play: The Making of Anton Corbijn, a documentary by Josh Whiteman now making the rounds on the festival circuit.
Tomorrow, August 14th, the documentary “It might get loud“, featuring The Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White, will hit theatres across the US (check for dates). No news on release date across Europe as yet, but U2tour.de has reported the German release will be on august 27.

Though the always-exciting format details are still trickling in, we know this: new liner notes abound, and the CD/DVD combo contains five portfolio prints, whatever that might mean. The DVD supposedly sports both film from a July 1987 show at Paris’ Hippodrome and the documentary Outside It’s America, but, again, that’s tentative.
Not to be outdone by Jacknife Lee, U2’s other collaborator Daniel Lanois has a documentary cooking.
This new film, ‘Here Is What Is’ contains footage of Lanois working with Eno and U2 in Morocco, as well as material shot with Emmylou Harris, Garth Hudson, Willie Nelson, Sinead O’Connor and Billy Bob Thornton.
‘Here Is What Is’ premieres at the Toronto Film Festival this September. A preview of the film can be seen on Daniel Lanois’ website.
Ireland’s RTE 1 screened a half hour documentary on the making of ‘Peter and the Wolf’ on Monday, January 5th. There’s a brief review of the documentary on gavinfriday.com. We expect to be able to offer some screencaps and footage next week.
