sex & drugs & rock & roll is easily one of our most anticipated films screening at Tribeca over the next week. You can check out the trailer over on our blog, CriterionCast.com, for our Tribeca Preview Series: http://criterioncast.com/2010/04/15/tribeca-film-festival-2010-preview-mat-whitecross-sex-drugs-rock-roll/
Deliciously psychedelic, cool and full of little priceless details that make it a must-see for anyone who loves rock history. Nice sort of companion piece to 24 Hour Party People. And Andy Serkis is fabulous as one of the founders of the true and only punk-rock.
Ian Dury was struggling with problems and questions far more serious than Ian Curtis had in "Control". He had not many reasons to be cheerful. Still, I found this strangely cohesive & impressive biopic another step in the direction of film based on Mark У Simith life. Someday we may live to see it.
