Sentimental feelgood documentary of Britpop aristocracy
15 March 2010 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Covering the comeback gigs of 2009, No Distance Left To Run also looks back at the story of Blur. The tale is told with some fairly candid up-to- date interviews with all four of the band and with a certain amount of honesty although the film strikes me as vaguely hagiographic

  • the band have obviously sanctioned the film as well and take the


opportunity to get things off their chest and wax sentimental.

I would have liked to have seen more contemporaneous footage from the first half of the 1990s. It would also have been to this film's benefit if we'd been able to see more backstage, fly-on-the-wall cuts from the 'comeback' concerts, instead of the arty, wistfully slo-mo accounts of the gigs. Still, that's the film and will appeal to those who count themselves fans of the band. Additionally, I loved the use of Vaughan- Williams (Serenade to Music and Lark Ascending) as it seemed entirely in keeping with not only the sentimentality of the film but the story of the temporary English cultural renaissance which characterized the band's golden period. 5/10
