Not bad, but not very detailed at all, history-wise
I first saw this on a late night showing on 4Music in the UK and it's not bad but it's not very detailed.
I think the film should have more about the history of his show, as nowadays this history is very hidden and overshadowed by the latest album, although it did show a long-time employee (Chris Willis). However, there were mentions of the gay club he worked at, what music was there, but just mentions. Perhaps this should have been almost like ABBA: The Movie with parts of the tour, a script, a historical part to the movie. But no, it was a cut-down preview to the album that should have a lot more detail. We want to be fascinated by his history. Listening to the current music is another thing we can do later. The film might as well cover other DJs. Perhaps there should be another film about the history of DJs rather than a cut-down film about just one. Plus, a whole hour is not enough, probably the director's hard drive isn't large enough. Hopefully, there will be a film about DJs I will be very interested in. You are recommended to watch it but is more of a promo than a biography so be careful.
