Saw it tonight at Screen on the Green and it was very awesome
is it a pretty straight documentary or does it get a bit weird? (read somewhere that the tour started going awry)
and his relationship with Matt, which fills it with lots of unexpected joys because they're (in his words at the Q&A) such an odd couple
might have to download it too
There's nearly always returns.
Or check the BFI website periodically the day before the show, the odd ticket often springs up.
around 11am, tickets appear.
And got them as staff ;) but Yeah check in the morning too!
to download legally like?
No showings anywhere near me though.
Is the BFI's iplayer thingy free?
But 99% sure this won't be available on there as it hasn't been funded by the BFI.
didn't know this was part of the film festival, else I would have got tickets. went to see The Double on Monday at Hackney Picturehouse. pretty decent.
Just like A Skin, A Night - nowhere seems to have it...
give it time
My friend accidentally slammed the door in Tom/Matt's Mum. She's never getting invited around for tea.
Have to say it was a excellent experience. The movie was touching and interesting, surprising even. Tom is a very likable person.
if it was based on a real person
it's really pretty great, at points it almost feels like a mockumentary, particularly the bit in the pool when he's talking about it being moby's house :D
I think the whole thing was staged, it just seemed like they were all a little too 'self aware'. Apart from the tour manager guy, you could tell he was really pissed off. Maybe he's a professional actor though.
even the band. Its been the ploy all along to make a hit mockumentary of the back of the bands success.

You can definitely tell when they're hamming it up, especially the other band members. The whole 'guest list' scene was excruciating, such a fake setup.
I did generally did quite like it though.
