Review Round-Up: ‘D.I.Y.’ & ‘Life Itself’

D.I.Y.

No, this isn’t an informative article about building shelves and benches but rather the first major short film from Josh and Mitch and Jam Flicks, better known for their adverts.

Having managed a band a decade or so ago, I can tell you one thing for sure... the road can be a strange friggin' place. Lord knows I've seen more than my fair share of weird things, but they were nothing compared to what's on display in Rock & Roll F'n' Lovely.

Josh Bagnall directs the flick, which stars Joel Fry, Anton Saunders, Lee Whitlock, Michael Starke, Mick Whitnall, John Jenkins, Eddie Jenkins, and Pete Doherty. Super curious? You can watch the movie right now via iTunes.

Synopsis

A dark and fantastical touring tale with a little rock and roll on the side, this touring crew drama focuses on a mythical festival tour that becomes a rock and roll legend.
