    So, it was released two days ago....I'm hoping that it jumps the theatres and is available for us non-UK folk to see sooner rather than later.

    Trailer!



    Press release!

    A cinematic exploration of Shane MacGowan’s story, Julien Temple’s film ‘Crock of Gold’ details Shane’s explosive existence, from his salad days, growing up in Ireland, to time spent on the mean streets of London and embracing the punk scene. To forming the Pogues and the conquering the known universe, we discover MacGowan’s passions, his humor & deep knowledge of music, history, spirituality & popular culture. For this is Shane’s story. A vision of the world through the eyes of the great punk poet himself and an intimate cast of close friends and family members, all channeled through Temple’s inimitable and eternally vibrant lens.

    I haven't followed the Pogues or Shane's career but I just read up on him; according to Wiki he's had to use a wheelchair since 2015 because he broke his pelvis. Ouch!! Five years!!!

    This is a great watch. It's pretty long for a music documentary, but Julien Temple keeps it fun, cheekily using good old cliches about the sainted Oooirish and the nasty Brits. The animation is great and varied, particularly enjoyed the Crumb like sequence about him dropping strong acid with a girl, taking her back to his parents' flat, talking her down from jumping off the balcony and then fucking her while she pulsated psychedelic colours.

    MacGowan is a contradictory fucker, and he really doesn't suffer fools gladly. He has a good drunken rapport with Johnny Depp but makes Bobby Gillespie look like a rabbit in the headlights. Not sure if the other Pogues refused to be involved or if they weren't asked, but the film is better for it, it's around the half way point before that part of the story even begins.

    If you like the Pogues, or just drunk cunts in general, this is essential.
