oldie but a goodie, gotta find that film, I think the story has a link to clips - all I remember when I saw it quite a few years ago was PG dropping the "F" bomb, gasp, and eating a banana lol and they were drinking a lot of wine, or yeah and Rosanna was supposed to be interviewing Peter, but she kept talking about herself - I liked her kitchen
Rosanna Arquette Interviews Ex-Lover Peter Gabriel, Other Musicians for New Film
March 16th, 2006 11:32am EST
Former lovers Peter Gabriel and Rosanna Arquette sat down for an awkward chat as the actress filmed her new documentary "All We Are Saying." Filmmaker Arquette interviewed rock superstars like Gabriel, Patti Smith, Sting and Chrissie Hynde, among others, about their musical inspirations and life away from touring.
But it's her chat about Gabriel's happy home life that stands out as the film's most awkward moment - he famously dated the star in the 1980s and penned his hit "In Your Eyes" as a tribute to the actress.
Talking about combining his career as a rock star with his personal life at his home in Box, near Bath, he tells Arquette, "I try to get balance by integrating enough normal life in there but there is that energy there and there are those temptations but I think the older you get. I had my sort of middle period when I was doing my running around - you may be aware of that. I'm a bit more settled now."
As Gabriel uncomfortably rocks in his chair, Arquette states, "I'm glad you're settled, I am. I'm happy for you. You seem good. It's good."

Here's some comments about Rosanna Arquette's show "All We Are Saying"
Worst Music Documentary Ever Made!!, 27 August 2006
Author: Carlini photography from Miami
Before I got paid to photograph Hotels and Restaurants (advertising). I spent a good part of the eighty's and ninety's as a photographer in the Music industry.
I've traveled with many bands doing tour photography and also was a contributor to many Music magazines. So I've been behind the scenes. Whenever I get a chance to watch these documentaries, esp Vh1 Behind the Music.
I sit and watch them to see how much of it is a true realistic look at life in the music industry. I have to admit I think Vh1 Behind the Music is an excellent production (even seen myself in the background a few times).
The difference between the Vh1 show and a documentary like All We are Saying (or babbling it should be). Is that Vh1 does their research and gives you an a full history and true account of the artist (good and bad) from beginning to the present. They make it interesting to the viewer to watch.
Rosanna Arquette basically just sticks a camera in the faces of these artists and gives them this open forum to ramble on and on and on.30 Min's into it.I thought what is the freakin point of this? I'm falling a sleep here!
I loved hearing Steven Tyler at the very beginning of the film sitting at his mansion complaining about how his record label calls him to tell him his song that was worth a million dollars is now worth 12 cents.cause every ones downloading!
But its certainly OK for him to allow the promoters and his record label to rip his fans off by charging a $150 for an Aerosmith ticket and $20 for a Cd. That's very lame Steven. You have lost my respect.
Many artists in this production I've photographed. I didn't remember them babbling this much when I met them. Maybe.if she would have showed the full interviews or didn't cut away to so many at once.
Each interview would have made more sense. The editing in this film is some of the worst I've ever seen.
Unless they were trying to make a film that absolutely made no sense whatsoever, and wanted to bore everyone to the point of wanting to slice their wrist to end the pain of watching this very boring film. Then they did a great job

I pretty much agree with glazedham's review. I will add the following.one of the things that I found most annoying is the fact that Arquette is frequently seen holding a camera while another camera is filming her holding the camera.
I don't know why, but this was unbelievably aggravating to me. All in all, I was left with the impression that many of these "artists" have just taken way too many drugs.
If their lives are so difficult, I recommend that they get off the stage and go to a part of the world where they can witness real suffering.
Hopefully they will take Arquette and her hand-held camera with them. Maybe she will eventually use footage from the hand-held camera as it seems to have served absolutely no purpose in this film.
I saw "All we are saying" on cable sometime last year and I have to agree it was pretty bad.
In my opinion it should have been called "look at how many rock stars I know personally"
Pg's part was extremely short and I felt it was edited because it seemed like he had more to say and then boom - no more.
She should probably stick to acting.

I liked seeing Peter relaxed, thanks to the wine and that banana - I think RA spent the first minute trying to figure out how to hook up the mike
She asks him a question, then before he can answer she talks about herself for 10 mins. lol
