Movie Info

In 1991, a band from South Wales with the unlikely name of Manic Street Preachers came on to the British music scene proclaiming their ambition to make one album, sell 16 million copies of it, and then split up. All these years, multiple hit records, one missing member, and many controversies later, they are still here. In this documentary, the colorful and contentious band faces off with their equally colourful and contentious fans in a verité multimedia mash-up experiment that will turn the traditional rock'n'roll documentary upside-down and shake it until all the change falls out of its pockets.

Critic Reviews for No Manifesto: A Film About Manic Street Preachers

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

This fan-made doc about the Welsh slogan rockers is a rough-and-ready DIY affair.

Top Critic

Non-fans of the band will find nothing of cinematic interest in this by-the-numbers music documentary and existing fans will be unlikely to learn anything new of note.

Financial pressure delayed completion of the film, rendering it several albums out of date on release, but it remains a valuable document for fans ...

It is a measured, intelligent film, though it primarily addresses the faithful.

This flimsy puff-piece from director Elizabeth Marcus is a boring document of a boring band.

Whatever you think you know about the band known as the Manics, you're probably wrong.
