Movie Info

As lead singer with Felt, Lawrence was responsible for some of the most precious music of the 1980s. On touchstone indie labels such as Cherry Red and Creation, the band released ten albums and ten singles - one for each year of the decade. Though few releases troubled the charts, Felt's cult status was assured and a mission of sorts was accomplished. Lawrence went on to form Denim and Go Kart Mozart, bands that revelled in referencing 1970s glam and novelty rock while slyly critiquing the contemporary pop scenes. There's been an air of tragi-comedy about Lawrence's career at times. Felt were bumped from the cover of the NME when editors favoured a blacked-out cover to illustrate a feature on youth suicide, while Denim's infectious 1997 single 'Summer Smash' was scratched from radio playlists when it was released in the week Princess Diana died.

All Critics (4)

Even if all it does is introduce a few more people to Felt, it's made the world a happier place.

The List

The singer's confusion and despondency at the close is the only real thing about this journey - the rest, you feel, is pizza and fairytales.

The Ooh Tray

Unless you already worship at the altar of Lawrence, there's not much concession made to you; it feels very much for devotees only.

Guardian

A heart-melting essay on the harsh societal barometers for artistic success and failure.
