Emotional and enjoyable! 5/10
10 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Review: I quite enjoyed this documentary because it showed a true side of Paul Gascoigne, away from all the glitz, glamour and a awful lot of drinking. The director didn't rely on cheap gimmicks and clever graphics and he chose to just have Gascoigne speaking about his life, which was quite emotional in parts. I was expecting more information about his filthy habits and his troubled marriage but those subjects weren't mentioned because it's mostly about his football career. His brief but highly successful career was put on hold, after a bad injury during the 1991 FA Cup Final, before he moved to Lazio in 1992 for a record signing fee. He played a few matches for the team but he wasn't able to shine like he did in the UK. After being kept out of the Lazio team for some time, he moved to Rangers in 1995 for a record transfer fee of £4.3m and he regained his reputation as a skilled football player. He made a hand gesture whilst celebrating a goal and he received a death fret from the IRA which bothered him for some time and he was worried about his families safety but he soon received another letter from IRA, saying that he would be murdered if he made the hand gesture again, which put his mind at rest. He then played for England in Euro 96 with Terry Venables as the manager and after a magnificent goal against Scotland, he had earned the love of the English crowd again. He then had a strong battle with alcohol and drugs, which isn't shown in the documentary, and he went on to play for Middlesbrough and Everton but he was dropped from the England squad in 1998. Now heavily addicted to drink and drugs, his face was plastered in all of the newspapers as the man who had it all and wasted it. On top of that, he started to become paranoid because personal information were leaking in the newspapers, which made him dive into the bottle even more. He then found out that his phone was being tapped by the News of the World and he finally got his day in court in 2015. He continues to be an icon to a lot of people around the world, mainly for his no fear attitude on the pitch but his addiction has troubled him, in the latter part of his life and he has been close to death a couple of times. Everyone wishes the best for him but it's only him that can help himself. This emotional documentary, really does show how having everything really isn't for everybody. He will never return to the form that he was in during the 90's but he still was one hell of a football player. Watchable!

Round-Up: Its sad to see how Gazza has become, after such a successful career! I found him to be very honest in this documentary, especially about the deaths within his family and friends and how they troubled him. He finally got divorced in 1998 after a turbulent marriage which involved Gazza beating his wife for nearly 2 years and they later tried to reconcile there relationship after he faced his demons but it still didn't work out. With that aside, he still is loved by the nation and that famous crying photograph from the 1990 World Cup will definitely be a moment to remember in English history.

Budget: $1million Worldwide Gross: N/A

I recommend this movie to people who are into their documentary/biopic/sport about Paul Gascoigne and his rise and fall in the world of football. 5/10
