curiously engrossing
23 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Somehow I thought this would be a pretty trite exercise (pop band Pulp get other 'celebs' to take about their first sexual encounters) but I have to say, it isn't.

Instead this short documentary is engrossing, refreshingly honest, at times funny, at other times quite touching. It all starts with a patch of grass and Jarvis's recollections of an early morning tryst at 19, and moves on from there.

Interviewees include Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer (both in backs of cars, but not at the same time obviously), Jo Brand (on a bathroom floor), Alison Steadman (talks about innocence - and she's right, it is a refreshing way of looking at it), John Peel (grubby and hardly teenage romance - not him, the encounter!), Terry Hall (behind a sofa at 14), Justine Frischman (er - not very memorable), and Viv Stanshall (claims to have been ten and 'led on').

I didn't really know who the others were (my ignorance possibly and lack of credits on the film itself doesn't help) but there were memories of I think a patch of lilacs (very Blakeian); a seedy visit to a prostitute; and an 'ecstatic' recollection from someone who seemed to have had numerous problems before it finally happened ...

I liked this film. I thought the use of ticking clocks and the like (and road drills) was pretty funny as well and the whole thing is done in an interesting way (lots of close-ups and incidental music, that sort of thing), rounding off with Pulp's video for their song of the same name.

You can find 'Do You Remember The First Time' on the Pulp Hits DVD in the Short Films section.
