Moments of brilliance
I loved the book. The book is laugh-out-loud funny. The problem with this cinematic adaptation is that there are only a few laugh-out-loud moments. Tone is the problem. The opening sets up the tone as dark and unpleasant and the main character as thoroughly unlikeable. We have to spend an hour and a half with this guy? It’s like having to sit beside a racist drunk on a night bus. But it’s hard to not like Nicholas Hoult (and the scathing honesty of his character) and the film did grow on me – perhaps like a tumour. There are moments of brilliance and a few great lines (no pun intended) but ultimately the buzz doesn’t quite feel worth it.
Sex, Drugs and A&R’s
Pretty slick dark comedy a bit similar to American Psycho but set in the British music-scene circa 1997 about a A&R man who’ll do anything to get a new hit.
Nicholas Hoult does really well in the lead I thought, doing something really different to anything I’ve seen him in before which mostly have been American films.
It doesn’t have any likable characters but it doesn’t really need to, that’s not really what this movie is about after all it’s a (extreme) satire on the music-business and if you are aware of the 90’s music-scene you can easily tell some groups that are being poked fun of, but mostly it’s about the people behind the scenes.
I can’t really say too much more about it than that as I might end up spoiling something, but yeah it’s a pretty cool flick, fairly fast paced and with a rocking 90’s soundtrack to match.
