    A bit lifeless unfortunately. Didn’t go into enough detail about the band to warrant making this movie a documentary, would have worked better as a true concert movie.

    Lots of shockingly ugly people in this documentary--makes me want to go to Sheffield.

    An interesting look at a very normal bunch of people who are part of an iconic band.

    The music almost made it worthwhile in itself. If it hadn't been for the realisation that the weird vignettes about the people of Sheffield reflected Pulp's songs about the people of Sheffield then I'd have been a bit non-plussed. I'd forgotten how many good songs they'd made.

    O valor de "Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets" reside sobretudo na forma como desmistifica as noções mais comuns do rockumentary: ou seja, retrata os Pulp como a grande banda Britpop que de facto foram, mas com uma dívida enorme para com a vida comum e demasiado mediana da cidade de Sheffield. Os Pulp, na perspectiva de Florian Habitch e com a colaboração conceptual de Jarvis Cocker, só chegaram às bocas do mundo porque souberam aproveitar o tédio de Sheffield, mas nem por isso são mais heróicos que as pessoas que deram a inspiração às suas canções mais emblemáticas. "Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets" reparte o seu tempo de antena em partes iguais pela banda e pelas pessoas nas ruas de Sheffield. E, tal como qualquer esforço artístico em Sheffield, é um documentário porreiro. Nem mais, nem menos.

    Bits and pieces of performance, band, fans, and Sheffield. Nice, exclusively affectionate, but not really revelatory, just vignettes. It did make me fondly remember the town and the music.

    Not earth-shaking, and no doubt of niche interest. Personally, I loved seeing my beautiful home town get the cinematographic treatment, and hearing some Pulp songs that aren't bloody Common People.
