2.0 out of 5 stars A Missed Opportunity!, 1 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Young Soul Rebels [1991] [DVD] (DVD)
I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy of this, as I consider myself very much to have been part of the late seventies/early eighties soul scene in London. Sadly I found the film a massive disappointment. The music and culture seems to be relegated to a minor role, with the main themes seeming to be obsessions over homosexuality and perceptions of the police as racist thugs. Neither of those feature heavily in my recollection of time. I can only assume that the writer/s had some sort of axe to grind. Initally I couldn't believe I had made 16 years without seeing this film... know I know why. As a film - a reasonably entertaining piece of fiction, but a sadly missed opportunity to recreate powerful memories of a time of excitement, joy and love of the music.
