Movie Info

SOUL BOYS OF THE WESTERN WORLD is a journey through the 1980s and beyond; the story of a band, an era and how one small gathering of outsiders in London shaped the entire world's view of music and fashion. The film is not only a fascinating, often hard-hitting social and cultural document of the time, but a brutally honest story of how friendships can be won, lost and ultimately regained.

This has the quality of an illustrated oral history, though the incessant nostalgia and revisionist history are exhausting.

An energetic, entertainingly assembled documentary portrait ...

This slapdash but endearing doc about the rise, fall and resurrection of '80s pop outfit Spandau Ballet is an inside job, packed with strong archive footage yet lacking anything you'd call truly incisive.

Top Critic

The band wasn't that great. Neither is the movie, which, if directed with a bit more sensitivity toward the latent comedy, could have been hilarious.

Apr 29, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

You won't be convinced that Spandau Ballet was the best band of the 1980s. Even if they did have the best bums.

It helps to be a Spandau fan, of course, but the smart, layered contextualizing and historicizing of the group within the film makes it a gift for any pop-culture aficionado.
