Amazing British talent, a story well needed to be told and the theme’s fit the times perfectly. The filming feels claustrophobic and edgy
As a manc, this film encapsulates all you need to know about the madchester scene. It's very well made and extremely funny in a dry way.
Going in I didn’t expect much, and even though the production itself is a bit dated, the story, acting, and music are on another level.
Makes you appreciate Manchester's music scene (Joy Division, New Order, etc.) And also, has a bit of comedy to it.
Great commitment to a story and a vision with a good helping of comedy. Only downside is the lack of rewatchability
Equal parts insightful and hilarious in its retelling of the Manchester music scene Steve Coogan was perfectly cast as the self-aware Wilson
Good and funny lookout what happened in Manchester music scene wild years in late 70s and 80s
Largely reliant on it's great cast, this movie aims to capture a particular vibe and does so excellently.
Amazing. Great to know more about New Order and Happy Mondays.
Absolutely hilarious from beginning to end, Steve Coogan is fantastic as always
I loved the movie, it is deep and light at the same time. It nicely portrays the era in music histroy.
With plenty of fourth wall breaking, and a loose grasp of the truth, this movies weaves a humourous tale of a particular music scene.
Watched this during vacation. Was pretty drunk and really enjoyed it. Because of the movie i'm Joy Division fan.
Hysterical, dry British humor. Also, learned more about new wave music. Great overall.
Tells the story of the beginning of the post-punk movement while staying fun and fresh.
i can’t stress this enough: sean harris is not and never will be my ian curtis. still a good movie.
A really interesting take on this music era!
Outdated but worth a watch
