Movie Info

Documentarian John Dower turns his attention toward the 1990s British musical movement dubbed Brit-pop in his 2003 film, Live Forever. Going back to an early 1990 concert by the now-defunct band the Stone Roses, Dower traces the roots of the Brit-pop movement as originating from Britain's simultaneously discontented and disenfranchised youth, a residual outcome of the Conservative Party's decade-long stranglehold on Britain's political and cultural identity. As Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher departed from her office, the 1990 Roses concert seemed to indicate a new musical movement would soon follow. Within a couple of years, the rock groups Blur and Oasis would take the lead in the new anti-establishment, almost anti-American, style of music that briefly seemed to revitalize Britain's sense of musical identity. Included in Dower's film are numerous interviews with British rockers Damon Albarn, Noel Gallagher, and Liam Gallagher. ~ Ryan Shriver, Rovi

I watched this glued to the screen because this was all I listened to for a better part of three years. I caught it on BBC America a few months back and it was really interesting to see what was actually going on at the time. Some of the cultural aspects flew over my head like a 747, but I do know that the Gallagher brothers need to stop talking with their mouths full.
