The film suffers from total stupidity in its characters and was transfered to video very poorly resulting in half the action being unable to be seen due to the darkness of the print. If zombie flicks are your thing, you might enjoy it somewhat, but I think even fans will be disappointed with this one.
Absolutely one of the best movies that I have ever seen in its humorous and at the same time disturbing portrait of a group of Scottish heroin junkies. The exploits they get themselves into are absolutely riveting, and the cast is probably the best ensemble cast I've ever witnessed. Every cast member does not appear to be acting...they look, behave, and ARE their character in the film. This makes for a believeable, if not relatable, story which takes the viewer on a roller coaster ride of triumph and tragedy, culminating with problems within the once tight-knit group. Also featuring an awe-inspiring soundtrack, which I would strongly urge fans to check out.
If you haven't seen this flick, I strongly urge you to check it out. It is absolutely amazing.
Overall, this film was a no holds barred look at the life of this infamous rock 'n' roll "legend", and one that was actually quite revealing into the how and whys of his life through interviews with him, friends, family, and fans. There is quite a few disturbing and absolutely disgusting images, including moments from live shows, as well as a scene a fan talks about with a camera there to document it. This particular scene is just beyond description...and as not to spoil it should you attempt to watch this film, I refuse to comment further.
GG was definitely one of the outlaws and revolutionaries in the rock and roll industry, paving the way for such artists as Marilyn Manson and others doing nasty things on stage and this documentary is worth it to see just what created this rock and roll myth and the "legend" behind it. Recommended, but be prepared for a lot of nastiness going in.
