PULP (HotDocs)

Alternative rockers Pulp found stardom in the ‘90s with hits like “Common People” and “Disco 2000.” Twenty-five years later, and 10 million albums sold, they return to their hometown of Sheffield for a reunion show. More than just a concert film, Pulp evokes the live-music experience as a fantastic collective dream seen through the dual perspectives of both audience and band all at once. Everyone is equal in the escape, where performers are pedestrian and the spectators are made stars. This exhilarating look at popularity and performance blends concert footage, interviews with the band, bystanders and fans, and songs performed by Sheffielders in telling tableaux. Filmmaker Florian Habicht gets us lost in the moment as much as in the music. Forget fame and fortune—they’re fleeting. After all is said and sung, it isn’t the sexy front man or the whiff of youth that keeps us dreaming, it’s the tunes

    I thought it was good, but I preferred the Blur doc, myself.

    On another note, I think this should have been posted as an FYI. It wasn't really a meet up since as far as I know, there was no organizer and no one actually met up, which kind of defeats the purpose!

    I'm sorry I won't be able to make it. I'm fighting a cold. Sneezing and coughing won't make it a nice experience for me. Enjoy the film
