Top Spot (Tracey Emin, 2004/UK) – 7/10 [Rewatch]
The only feature film yet made by Tracey Emin, the controversial British artist, which combines an autobiographical account of her home town of Margate with fragments of the lives of teenage girls within the film. It is very roughly made at times, at times pretentious, but as an attempt to reflect the place she came from it does so in an honest and admirable way that shows real girls onscreen rather than stereotypes, a female artist really showing young females fully.
