Critic Reviews for Here to be Heard: The Story of The Slits

All Critics (10)

Driven by its own punk-aesthetic - bold intertitles, archive celluloid, and so on - Badgley's film is a celebration of the band and their achievements.

It's tight and gripping, relating a story that's vital yet underheard.

June 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The background music frequently drowns out contributors' voices, while precious early footage is overlayed by annoyingly distracting typography, but if you can forgive these blemishes, this is still the singular story of a genuinely unique band.

Badgley's scrappy, heartfelt portrait mirrors his subject's DIY aesthetic with a true fanatic's intensity.
