  • Aside from a few stylistic flourishes, Reynolds sticks rigidly to the tried and tested language of the rock doc and elects to let the music do the talking, using 31 songs from Phil and Lizzy's back catalogue.

  • This really is the definitive Phil Lynott documentary, revealing a fascinating story that feels genuine and purposeful. While the ending is sad, the tone is ultimately uplifting and celebratory. See it in the cinema with surround sound.
