“This film is bloody brilliant” – The Quietus
A rare outing for this celebrated documentary about – and narrated by – Luke Haines, the prolifically inventive songwriter and former frontman of the criminally underrated Auteurs and delightfully arch Black Box Recorder, who is probably best known now as the author of Bad Vibes, a comically cold-blooded post-mortem of the mid-90s Britpop scene. Featuring interviews with Jarvis Cocker, and writers John Niven, David Peace and Stewart Home, the film follows a bizarre commercial spiral tracks from a Mercury award nomination that saw the Auteurs beaten to the prize by Suede’s debut album by just a single vote to an incongruous Top of the Pops appearance with the later Black Box Recorder.
Part of Britain on Film, this event is supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London and proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network funded by the National Lottery.
