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.

Enjoyable if you quite like Pulp, probably great if you are a fan

This easy-going film about the British band that seemed happy to keep things domestic is part concert footage, part "where are they now" and a little bit of "surely this is set-up" magic, centered around Pulp's final Sheffield concert in December 2012.

Most people will want to know if it would be good watch, even if they only sort-of like Pulp's music. Well I think it is. Pulp still sound very good in 2014 and it is refreshing to hear a band express sentiments that they actually live by. They are in many ways the antithesis of the fame-game which is hinted at which the various references to everyday working-class life, although the frequent references to "regular people" and the slightly self-conscious adoration of common people could be a little grating for some.

An off-the-cuff interview with some local siblings was a personal highlight, as were the sections with Jarvis alone, although I was left wanting more Jarvis one-to-one time as he comes across as a really interesting guy.

Like the band it's unpretentious and fun, with an underlying profound message. You'll probably enjoy this if you like Pulp and you'll probably adore it if you're a fan.
