find out what your missed, (have it large), 7 July 2000
Author: (firstname.lastname@example.org) from all over, England
I hope you'll stumble across this title and make the effort to find a copy
because it's certainly worth it. Furthermore, if your radio seems locked
to Pete Tong on a Friday night, then this is essential viewing.
Not everyone will "get" this film, it's certainly one for the younger generation, but anyone who enjoyed "Human Traffic" will find this just as enthralling.
In essence it's a snapshot of clubbing in 1994, long before things became mainstream as they are now (Y2K). And it's a rollercoaster ride with 6 "youths" as they enjoy/live life with drugs/clubs/pubs and thugs.
It's balanced, it's funny, it's sad, it certainly portrays a good view of drug taking both the positive and negative aspects. And just as Justin Kerrigan (director) does in Human Traffic, it shows the underlying social situation that millions of 18 - 25 year old are in in the 90's (and naughty's).
If you doubt the fact that over half a million people use Ecstacy every weekend in the UK, then watch this film and understand.
If you just love club music and want a laugh, then track it down.

ingenious, 13 April 1999
Two years before he made a big splash with the comedy "The Full Monty", Peter Cattaneo directed this rivetting feature about teenage angst, friendship and drugs without ever being priggish. A throbbing soundtrack, a tense and dismal atmosphere combined with outstanding performances, especially by Lena Headey and Ian Hart, make "Loved Up", which was highly acclaimed at the Edinburgh Film Festival, a must-see. Definitely not your run-of-the mill tv-film.

moving, 7 June 1999
Author: Robert Cooper (email@example.com) from Scotland
I saw this film on a dreary Monday night, and stumbled on it by accident. In 1995 I hadn't really witnessed the drug-culture surrounding the UK club scene - and this program really opening my eyes. Definitely the best feature of this moving film (other than a twist at the end) is the over-use of Leftfield's excellent track "Melt". If you like that track - you'll like this film. Superb stuff.

Riveting, 11 October 2006
Author: abbieb0809 from London, UK
I stumbled across this years ago when it was on TV. Luckily I taped it and often watch it because it's such excellent entertainment and the music blows your mind. I spent years trying to find out if the soundtrack was available and then discovered it was by Leftfield and all the songs were on one album; Leftism. This film accurately portrays both the "highs" and huge lows of the drug culture in the late eighties. The acting is brilliant and the end puts it all into perspective. Even if your life didn't take you down the path of Ecstasy, raves and all-nighters it is well worth taking a peek at how it must have been for the thousands of club goers discovering that everything started with an E !!!
