Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets

Well-made rock doc about the Brit-pop band


Florian Habicht's rock documentary, Jarvis Cocker

Florian Habicht's rock doc follows Jarvis Cocker and his mates as they prepare for their (maybe) final show in their hometown of Sheffield. It's a reunion of sorts after close to a decade of inactivity, and, of course, the film delves a bit into their history. Artfully put together, the film is a pleasure in terms of its editing — a scene at a butcher counter, which could easily be pedestrian, feels like poetry. It stands as good viewing even if you're only a casual fan (which can't be said of all music documentaries).
