    Watched the docco a while ago.

    What a pile of sub-student shite.

    I don't want to hear what your pals have to say, matey. I want not to hear them drawing morals for the olympics [<- malapropism of the month].

    I wanted someone to find a cameraperson who can make beautiful pictures - not someone failing their training for London Tonight.

    Hello? This is art. You know...? Obviously not.

    Then I wanted them then to sit back, shut up, and edit - to let the art tell its own story.

    The documentary was dismal

    I think that the idea of filming people's reactions was completely valid, but why one earth feature mostly one woman (the filmmakers' girlfriend?) going on an on about how amazing it is?

    What a wasted opportunity. I missed loads of the actual theatre because of the rain and I wanted to see what happened, not watch some daft bint running around going "it's amazing, it's really amazing!" over and over again.

    I saw the documentary last night, and while it wasn't fantastic, I was just so happy to see the elephant and the girl - I was crying :oops:

    I've just ordered the music and am planning a trip to calais :D milesy says we can only go for a day though, but I want to go for the whole thing!

    It really cast a spell over London... Seemed to effect everyone... Powerful Art.

    Something about the starchild look of knowing wonder in the girls eyes, looking afresh on our bizarre city/lives...very moving.

    And then there's the elephant ;)

    This is why art is so important in life, something the Tories have failed to understand and almost completely destroyed in favour of corporate sponsored bullshit.

    One of the best things ever. Spectacular and awesome and transporting. So very glad I was there.

    PS: Building things at Royal de Luxe is probably my dream job.

    Yes it was so brilliant and wonderful, still have a photo on my fridge. Thank you U75 - because if it wasn't for the enthusiasm of people on here at the time I might not have gone up to see it.

    Mation real life adventure worth more than pieces of gold

    It was brilliant, for sure. Really, really amazing. I have some very happy and some very sad memories and feelings linked to it, but I can't be sad about anything that happened on that day itself.
