  • A dazzling visual diary of legendary performances, THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT chronicles the development of the Who from angry young mod upstarts to worldwide arena rock icons. Director Jeff Stein (who was just 21 at the time) was given unlimited access to archives of the Who, occasionally butting heads with famously strong-willed guitarist/songwriter Pete Townsend over the direction of the film. It begins with the band's famed guitar-smashing, 1967 American TV debut on The Smothers Brothers show and continues through Monterey Pop, Woodstock, and on into the 1970s as the band cements its "legend" status in the rock canon with such complex works as QUADROPHENIA. Twenty-two classic Who tunes are featured, including a special version of the title track, "My Generation," "Magic Bus," "Happy Jack," and "Long Live Rock." Manic drummer Keith Moon, who provides numerous laughs in the film, died a year before the film was released.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (8/20/93, p.67) - "...the Who could generate an excitement that bordered on apocalypse. While the rest of this documentary isn't always up to that level, it comes close..." - Rating: A
    Uncut (5/04, p.134) - 4 stars out of 5 - "THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT works by simply reminding you of the power and conviction of Townshend's music, as evinced by these astonishing archive performances."
