FANTASTIC in-depth documentary

By SteveHC

Comments about PBS Circus Blu-ray:

One of the best documentary series I've ever seen, period. If you've ever wanted to know what modern-day circus life is really all about - the family relationships, friendships, interpersonal difficulties, the business issues, you name it - these are *THE* DVDs or Blu-Rays to watch. Beautifully photographed, remarkably well paced, excellent sound and video quality. Absolutely WONDERFUL!

Worth buying a Blu-ray player for

Comments about PBS Circus Blu-ray:

If you have an HDTV and don't already have a Blu-ray player, use the money you save by purchasing this multi-disc set towards getting one. (I suggest an OPPO as it will also play most any other CD sized disc; i.e. SACD, DVD, DVD-Audio, etc. as well as the new digital content from the Internet.) If you don't already have an HDTV get the Blu-ray player now and upgrade when you can.

Then enjoy a fantastic mini-series about the circus. You may change your mind about running away to join a circus. Or, it just may make you realize what you've been missing all of your life. Either way, it will affect you.

A wow of a movie!

By marion-- the cat rescuer

Comments about PBS Circus Blu-ray:

This is without a doubt the BEST documentary we (husband and I) have seen. It's one we will probably see at least once or twice a year. The music is great. The inside look at the circus. The hierarchy in play/ owner/manager/performers/grunt people is fascinating as is the in depth look at certain people's life choices.
It was a moving story, exciting and also contained a certain sadness. All of life can't be captured in one great moment of glory. You have to go back and perform again and again. When you fall, you have to get back up.
