No Distance Left To Run: A Film About Blur (NC)

The Independent Culture

A rather indulgent documentary on the career-arc of Britpop's favourites, following their reformation last year and the triumphant headlining gigs at Glastonbury and Hyde Park.

The quartet reminisce vaguely on their rise to fame in the early 1990s and their subsequent implosion 10 years on, though it's dispiriting to realise that they have almost nothing else to offer beyond the story of the band's interpersonal dynamics. One suspects they are individually more interesting than they come across here, but with no interviewer on hand to challenge them this is more blah than Blur. I do love "Tracy Jacks", though.
