This new film about Oasis’s glory years is rousing, heart-rending and really f**king funny
Pilote : Do It Now Man
Apehx-style techno crunchings from Pilote, following-up acclaimed debut 'Antenna'...
However, Cullen eventually proves he's his own man - the post acid crash of the supremely wired 'Paul Oakenfold' with its slurry slug beats and twisted techno is especially good, as is the defiantly oddball beauty of the cod-funk 'French Canadian'.
Best of all is the world weary 'Fairplay' where a disembodied Peter Cook claims "I have had a long life, I've had a very good life. And I've had just about enough of it really" over a plaintive melody and stuttering backbeat. Not all of it hangs together though - you can have too much of a good thing, and the likes of the metronomic 'Nelson' and the Hal Hartley sampling 'Dialogue' outstay their welcome by a good hour or two.
Despite that 'Do It Now Man' is guaranteed to enthral and infuriate in equal measures, and ultimately wins you over with a measure of cheek and unhinged charm.
