A Review, in Words
John Otway is a genuine man and a dreamer and I respect that. A lot of his songs are terrible and yet a lot of them are superb.
This movie is well worth seeing. It is hilarious, endearing, a little emotional and confirms that John is actually an inspiration.
I discovered Otway about 13 years ago on a copy of the 'Old Grey Whistle Test' DVD - He was performing 'Really Free'. I'd never actually seen the famous footage until this movie, where it is used like a running gag.
Anyway, if you're a fan of rock 'n' roll, success, failure or hair brained schemes - you should go see this movie.
If you have not yet experienced John Otway - you should go see this movie and then buy a ticket to one of his gigs next time he's in your town. I guarantee it will be the first of many you attend.
PS: David Crabtree as Deadly - The Roadie. The best bit is where he runs over all the glass and cuts his feet, oh wait! That was Die Hard.
