Debutant director O'Connor's lively documentary goes some way to capturing the eclectic and eccentric nature of the label's management and recording artists.
It's entertainingly riotous, though as a film, its print-the-legend approach could have used a few dissenting voices to balance out the rampant mythmaking.
With a talking-heads format, it's pretty trad to look at, but as a slice of pop culture history, it's never less than fascinating.
A little messy at times, like McGee himself, but just right for nostalgics.
O'Connor captures the hedonistic mood of a particular time - although anyone who wasn't there might find it a bit impenetrable.
It's a rise and fall story (of course) and between the no-nonsense interviewees and the wealth of footage, a vivid and moving one.
For those already familiar with the story, there's little new to learn, but there are enough fresh interviews, plus plenty of airtime given to some of the lesser-known players, to keep Upside Down interesting.
Documentary about Creation records. Possibly only of interest to people who listened to shoegaze back in the day. Or who liked Oasis, as it is Oasis heavy towards the end. Personally, I was about ready to turn it off by this point.
This follows the story of Alan McGee more than anything, but there are people of interest interviewed. Quite a bit of Bobby Gillespie, Jim Reid and Mark Gardner, (unrecognizable), to name a few. Telescopes are barely touched and Slowdive not at all except a brief shot of the Souvlaki cover. This was a pleasant walk down memory lane, but there should have been more on other bands - I guess it's 1.40 run time was too brief to be properly extensive.
