Can't Look Back In Anger, 28 October 2011
Author: Framescourer from London, UK

It's often difficult to separate oneself from documentaries that cover one's own, halcyon experience. I remember watching and listening as the Creation records legend created itself and its romance is utterly compelling. Danny O'Connor blends everything at a consistent pitch of music, rosy reminiscence and very cunningly selected and edited footage.

The key moments - The Jesus And Mary Chain's Upside Down (providing the film's title), Screamadelica and the signing of Oasis - flow into one another with the inevitability of hindsight, but also with the blurred penumbra of drugged vision. So similarly the interviews are shot in yesteryear-black-and-white and the media flows across itself. However, just as the talking heads are older and cleaner so the audio-visual melange clarifies rather than muddies. It's classy.

Irrespective of anyone's investment, it is a great tale, tumescent with the romance of the greatest period in British popular music since the 1960s (it's also the final noteworthy period of music-making before the paradigm shift of the iPod and iTunes). A super film. 8/10
