quite disturbing
4 December 2004 | by (dumfrieshire) – See all my reviews

having a copy of this film,at first it opens like a travelogue sort of thing with your usual bbc type commentary,then thats just a sweetener for what is to come.we are then given some interview footage from various elements of the globe.on the whole the first half of the film is quite dull(especially the smashie and nicey deejay)and the second half will leave a horrible taste in the mouth.one of the victims appeared as a groupie in confessions of a pop performer.if you can locate this(quite difficult anyway)any fan of British sleaze will be overwhelmed but if not you will be quite disturbed by the whole affair.anyway,they don't make them like this anymore.also a soundtrack in the background by the pretty things.
