It's pretty enjoyable, although as has been said, it doesn't really add much extra information to the creation of The Magic Whip. Also, as great as the live footage is, it felt like padding to a certain degree, I think; something which is never the case on No Distance. Anyone around here should enjoy it though. Still totally watchable and often very funny.

There's an interview with the director Sam Wrench on Irish radio. It's on the Tom Dunne Show. About half way down the page. http://www.newstalk.com/podcasts/The_To ... rld_Towers" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Just watched a clip of TIAL online, it has Alex talking over it. Is that actually in the film? Talking over the performances?
