Our Daily Free Stream (...)Der Film nimmt sich dabei selbst nicht ernst; einmal blickt Wilson direkt in die Kamera und erklärt uns, dass eine Szene fehlt (die es aber bestimmt auf DVD dann geben würde). Kein Plan, keine Strategie, nur eine Attitude! Das ist Punk und das hat Winterbottom verinnerlicht.
Tony Wilson: "And tonight something equally epoch-making is taking place. See? They're applauding the DJ. Not the music, not the musician, not the creator, but the medium. This is it. The birth of rave culture. The beatification of the beat. The dance age. This is the moment when even the white man starts dancing. Welcome to Manchester."
What a film! I dont care if the stories are real or if they are lies, that is what history is all about. This film made me remember finding music, finding bands I fell in love with and really just living to dance with my mates on the weekend. I dream of being at the hacienda in the early 90's and this is the closest I will come. Also, the 4th wall breaks are so good! Great film!
wonderful film with top performances from coogan, consindine and Harris as Ian Curtis and the soundtrack is as awesome as you are likely to get. Get the 2 disc special edition as you get a hours worth of deleted scenes and tons of great features. My fav Winterbottom film.
