A bit of a Blur,Sterophonics,Cocteau Twins..etc
4 October 2018 | by richardellis-68323See all my reviews

I was a teen in the 80's and watched live artists regular, Madonna, Duran Duran, Wham, Micheal Jackson etc and then in to the 90's I was watching Stone Roses, R.E.M, Pulp etc and I was expecting life to keep churning out great bands and this is where this film kicks in. In era's of great music the 21st Century and it technology has made things quite boring...Hence Modern Life is Rubbish and a lot of people watching this can see where the main character is coming from . Its a British film and a bit gritty but you feel the chemistry between the two main stars. He looks like a rock star ( dark and moody) and she is that pretty girl next door with a smile that makes your day worth while. My only problem with this film is that there are so many good songs in this film and no Soundtrack album to buy, which is a bit ironic. So watch (and listen) and enjoy.
