I agree with Max on this one. I've heard so many times about what a failure
Rattle and Hum was, etc, etc...but it really was considered as such by the
US media. The rest of the world really enjoyed it (at least down here in
Latin America, anyway). Here in Argentina it was a HUGE success, and I
believe it introduced many many people to U2's music. As Max said, it was
the only way near a show we had...I remember that when I was at the cinema,
it was SUCH a party!!!!
Just my 0.2 cents...

PS: MESSAGE FOR ROB O. : Rob, some words for you...just let me tell you that
we all know and love Lilith for a long time. If you want to write long,
boring (IMHO), intrincate pieces of your mind just to show that you have
learnt all the words with Latin origin there were in English , it's fine
with us, we can take it (or scroll through it) but going around attacking
people just because they disagree is way off line, dear.
And remember...sometimes less is more.
