Blueblack Hussar, The

Veteran Jack Bond’s documentary of Adam Ant’s comeback from psychiatric ills sees him in good form of old: a funny, pugnacious, swaggering magnet for admirers. It’s a rambling, vainglorious chronicle with surprise ‘guests’ (Ronson, Rampling) and fun for devotees.

An upbeat comeback story for an enduring legend of British pop.
