    The Who: Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970
    The Who was near the height of its powers as one of Britain's greatest hard-rock bands when they played the massive 1970 Isle of Wight Music Festival for an audience of nearly 600,000. Filmmaker Murray Lerner, who captured the festival on film for the documentary Message To Love: The Isle of Wight Festival, focuses exclusively on The Who's set with this film, in which the band took the stage at 2 a.m. and electrified the sleepy crowd. The set includes "I Can't Explain," "My Generation," "Magic Bus," the rarities "Water" and "I Don't Even Know Myself," and a truncated version of the rock opera "Tommy." ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
