Quite Good

As a native of Sheffield who lives overseas and an occasional Pulp admirer who met Jarvis Cocker while out drinking in Sheffield in 1985(at least I remember)! of course I enjoyed this film. It's warm and rare portrayal of Sheffield and it's people provided me with many 'that was my life' moments and much nostalgia. But this isn't about me. The film aligns the band with ordinary working class, unassuming, self-deprecating people, the majority of Sheffield's population I believe, the state-housed or working/lower-middle classes. Jarvis himself is from a different stratum of society but that needn't matter. The film portrays those people sympathetically and allows their light to shine in a way that normally wouldn't be revealed. The music is good - it's Pulp. If you are interested in music documentaries, it's worth a look.

Great film

This is a film about the people of Sheffield and one Pulp concert, rather than the band's career. I thought it was hilarious, and extremely well made, and not at all what I was expecting. The ordinary people of Sheffield (I will avoid saying 'common') are varied and entertaining, and the concert footage is superb. There are many highlights, but I will outline a few of my favourite moments: Steve Mackey's explanation of why playing to people from Sheffield is so nerve-wracking, the performance of 'Help the Aged', the knife maker, Candida's honesty and everything Nick Banks says. Pulp have always presented pop music in an unusual and entertaining way, and this documentary is fitting of that legacy.

A PULP-tastic delight.

FILM REVIEW: 'Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets' Working alongside Pulp's lead singer, Jarvis Cocker, one-of-a-kind Kiwi treasure, Florian Habicht delivers a beautifully edited movie that's part documentary, part live concert recording, and all about the 'Common People' of Pulp's biggest hit. For me, it's the most enjoyable concert movie since Jonathan Demme's 'Stop Making Sense.'

A loving travelogue through Sheffield on the day of Pulp's last reunion gig, with a focus on ordinary people that renders them extraordinary. From a local girls soccer team sponsored by the band, and adoring Pulp fans of all ages, to the impossibly gangly, tea-sipping, flat-tyre-changing Jarvis himself, this is a funny, delightful and heart-warming tribute to a band, a city and the common folk wandering its streets.
