A brilliantly filmed documentary from Jack Bond showing Adam slowly working at getting his career back on track gigging for the first time in over fifteen years around London. Building up from small venues and leading up to a big open air gig in Hyde Park the live footage and choice of songs featured here is fantastic and refreshingly original.
It would have been easy to film and put together a “Greatest Hits” package but no, Jack Bond instead opts for the brilliant early stuff – You’re so Physical, Christian Dior, Red Scab, Press Darlings, Plastic Surgery and Beat my Guest – and it works so well.
It’s a bit uncomfortable watching at the beginning as we can clearly see Adam is not quite mentally stable at times but as the film progresses you see Adam back in control and this is lovely to see. I admire him so much for what he’s suffered, endured and finally put behind him, it’s great to have him back playing gigs and recording. Long may it continue.
If I have any complaints then it’s just this – I would have like to have seen Adam auditioning and rehearsing the band and I’m also left wondering about what happened to the results of the Paris recording session? And perhaps more live footage from the London gigs could have been included as an extra?
Adam Ant, a brilliant, original eccentric? Yes, yes and yes, but I would also add genius to that because genius he truly is.

Totally love Adam but this is a pretty poor 'documentary'. Jack Bond had a great subject to work with but didn't do the great man justice. Save your money and watch YouTube videos of Adam instead.

An illuminating though edited documentary following a year in the life of the great Adam Ant. You see him change throughout this film from someone quite intense to being very laid back and thoughtful. It has been made with love and care for the subject and doesn't portray him in a negative light. It's heartwarming to see Adam get himself back in the spotlight and this film shows his struggle from a performance rather than a personal point of view. Worth watching if you are an Ant Fan!

Bought for an adam ant loving friend as a birthday present but as it arrived unwrapped I thought I'd check it plays oK, which it does and see if she's init, which she isn't as it covers him just before he started touring again and the first few concerts, along with recording a record (I didn't know existed) in Paris. It's got Adam and Georgie girl and Twinkle in it and a lot of back stage and at home stuff and it you really like Adam I'm sure you'll love it.

A fascinating insight into one of the great characters of 20th century music and his return to performing, showing the determination and creative genius that mark his career. 'Behind the scenes' documentary that is candid and often captures Adam's humour.
