  • Poor documentary

    By Steer pike
    There was no narrative drive nor did we get to find out who Paul was as a person. It just followed Paul around with him showing us various objects for an hour. Shame, it could have been interesting.
  • Predictable

    By Essential Electronica
    The documentary is a bit like PS' fashion; stripey but predictable.
  • Expensive

    By Bnk777
    Less than an hour of Paul Smith talking about himself, its good but very expensive for what it is.
  • Inspirational
