Pulp: A Film About Life, Death And Supermarkets Review

Image for Pulp: A Film About Life, Death And Supermarkets

Twenty five years after emerging from the Sheffield gig scene as indie whippersnappers, Pulp return to their roots for a homecoming concert. There to chart it - and the ruminations of lead singer Jarvis Cocker and co - is documentary-maker Florian Habicht.

★★★★★

Convulsing like an electrocuted sex chicken, Jarvis Cocker leads Pulp through their final gig in this homecoming concert that doubles up as a sweetly dour portrait of their native Sheffield. All fire and drizzle, Cocker at one point compares fame to a nut allergy.

The witty, loquacious Cocker is watchable as ever and the gig scenes will thrill Pulpers.
