Product Description

The Alcohol Years is a poetic retrieval of the years Carol Morley spent in Manchester in a blur of inebriation. 'Compelling... uproarious... heartbreaking...' UNCUT ****, 'Of all the memoirs and mythmaps that have been generated by Manchester s music scene, few could be as raw as Carol Morley s wretchedly poignant film documentary' Dazed and Confused. Nominated for a Bafta, The Alcohol Years won the award for the Best Documentary at the Melbourne International Film Festival.


Compelling...uproarious...heartbraking - **** -- UNCUT

Morley's wonderfully frank and intimate film study of the person she once was... -- THE GUARDIAN

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 24 April 2005
By A Customer
A compelling, funny, poignant memoir of Carol Morley's 'lost' years in Manchester in the early 1980's. The story is told through painfully honest interviews with old friends and acquaintances who reveal Morley as a wild and promiscuous character. Morley herself never appears on screen, a clever device as the viewer is left to piece her story together. However, it's worth watching again with the director's commentary to get a sense of how Morley feels about some of the people who talk about her. A great insight on a fascinating life, city and culture. The other shorts on the DVD are pretty damn good too!

2.0 out of 5 stars Self-obsessed 15 Jun 2014
By Adrian
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Carol Morley's film is all about her favourite subject - Carol Morley.

Richard Witts calls her a "2nd division celebrity f***er". Well, it takes one to know one.

The best thing about this DVD was briefly seeing Vini Reilly in his house, cuddling his cat, and doing tai-chi in his back garden. Shame you couldn't hear his guitar playing, although some of his music was used in the film. But it wasn't really worth buying the DVD just for that.
