Chronological documentary of The Cure’s history
« on: December 13, 2017, 14:01:17 »
Tim Pope continues to give us info on what is planned for next year!

Let's hope this will come to fruition and will be widely shown on television as well as being released on dvd/bluray.  :)

chronological documentary of The Cure’s history from the 1970s via present day to the future

Hopefully they will show part of the curefans.com meeting in Peru where we were honoured to meet Tim Pope himself! :)

I tried to do the same, but it did not work! (Some bug in the forum support/network/machine room?)
Thus I just kept the post in the old topic, thanks for starting the new one.  :smth023

Nothing known so far, except that Tim Pope confirmed he & Robert will be working on it.
IF everything will go well, maybe the documentary will be shown in the second half of the year?
We'll have to wait and see. Robert seems to be quite busy (remastering "Mixed Up", remixing songs for "Torn Down", curating Meltdown festival, preparing anniversary show...)!  :o

I hope there will be more updates soon! Finally a proper documentary on The Cure  :smth023 but as you said Robert is very busy at the moment, so I think it will take a long time for the documentary to be released. We'll see

This year, Pope is also working on a feature documentary about The Cure’s 40 years in the music business, which will include archive footage supplied by the band’s front-man, Robert Smith.

“Robert Smith is giving me access to 50 boxes of film, which have never been seen before, of the early Cure days,” Pope said. “I want to make a film like ‘Goodfellas’ where Robert is narrating the film in a first-person way, and it is like crazy and we are on this journey.” He added, “Robert’s songs always deal with being the outsider.”

Pope started working with the band in 1981 and last worked with them on a music video in 1997 – on which his runner was Guy Ritchie. Pope toured with the band across six countries three years ago.

The Cure documentary is unlikely to be finished this year, Pope said."

Altough we were hoping for a quicker release, it comes as no surprise  :( However, I think it will be worth the wait:

Something exclusive and unseen before regarding young and early Cure...So exciting!
