Expanded edition of the documentary that follows the 2010 reunion shows of The Libertines and explores the tensions that led to their demise as a band. The Libertines were active between 1997 and 2004 and gained some acclaim for their influential brand of indie rock. However, tensions in the band - largely stemming from the drug abuse of co-frontman, Pete Doherty - led them to break up shortly after carving a niche for themselves in the mainstream. The film is directed by Roger Sargent, a confidant of the band, and features interviews with Doherty and Carl Barat as well as footage of the band in performance at the 2010 Reading and Leeds festivals.
