Based on the acclaimed memoir by renowned guitarist Andy Summers, Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police follows Summers' journey from his early days in the psychedelic '60s music scene, when he played with The Animals, to chance encounters with drummer Stewart Copeland and bassist Sting, which led to the formation of a punk trio, The Police. During the band's phenomenal rise and it's dissolution at the height of their popularity in the early '80s, Summers captured history with his candid photographs.

The dynamics of an extremely popular band are explored in this first-person account by Andy Summers (some would say, the least talented member of The Police). This documentary helps explain the band's meteoric rise and fall where egos and music's drug culture got in the way of lasting success for this innovative first New Wave band. Mixing punk and reggae styles was their claim to fame, and their stage presence proved electric. Unfortunately, this dvd suffers from clumsy editing between early days of the Summers's career, through 80's successes, and a reunion tour in 2007. The personal account of Andy's marriage break-up and remarriage years later is poignant, but more concert footage was probably what this dvd really needed .
