Modern British film-making at its best, 24 March 2004
Author: Richard Foster from England

Previous reviewers of this film obviously just don't get it. This is unlike recent Brit stinkers like Rancid Aluminium, Down Time, or Fanny and Elvis. This is more in the tradition of Withnail and I, Trainspotting, Lock Stock, 28 Days Later, and Dog Soldiers.

The history of Factory records is chaotic and episodic. This is reflected superbly in the film. The characterisations are brilliant; from Steve Coogan's portrayal of the complex Anthony H. Wilson to minor characters such as Dave Gorman's John the Postman. If you were there at the time, it all comes flooding back... if you weren't then just sit back and enjoy the portrayal of a unique time in British popular culture...MANCHESTER 1976-1992
