Ideas above its station
on 15 June 2014
I enjoyed this as a fan, and the 6 guys come across very well, but it's not really the social document it rather pretentiously claims to be.
There's a rather superficial attempt to link their journey to the story of Manchester and the UK in the 90s, but it's feeble stuff, and appearances from Tony Blair, Danny Boyle and the Stone Roses guy are irritating rather than illuminating. It starts off with some shots of the entire Class of 92 reunited, which looked interesting, but we never got to hear much about what happened to the rest of them. That's the director's choice, I suppose, but why go to all that trouble if you're not going to tell us at least a bit about them?
OK for fans, not one to keep.
