Masterpiece of a master
11 September 1999 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This movie is a combination of documentary, fiction and fictive documentary. It uses old interviews of Hanoi Rocks and live material filmed at several locations and times. The cuts are clever, and the film really keeps you tied in.

Andy McCoy is, to say the least, interesting. The best scenes of him are when he's in a hospital or touring and so on, when he doesn't act, but is himself. The movie gets even fighteningly close to who Andy really is.

Any Andy fan should see this. Just for the music, if nothing else.
