Live Forever succeeds in charting the rise and
decline of the Britpop genre with ease. Looking
back on the 1990s phenomenon, it removes the
rose-tinted spectacles that are so often donned
for such retrospectives and looks at the trend and
hype through a refreshing political perspective
hinging around the New Labour government. It's
fascinating to see how the spin doctors went to
work on this new youth culture to increase
popularity with voters.  It was a time of
political change, when, after long Conservative
rule, people were looking forward to the future,
and Cool Britannia filled a cultural hole. There
was bizarre art from the likes of Emin and Hurst,
and a vibrant music scene filled with "jolly" Blur
tunes and Pulp's off-kilter takes on the working
class. But it was Oasis's meteoric rise and the
simultaneous "Lad" cultural stereotype they
embodied that really gripped the nation's youth
(both male and female). Live Forever offers
interviews with the Gallagher brothers (who
actually come across as sound geezers), Damon
Albarn (who fares less well, and it becomes clear
where director John Dower's commitment lay in the
big Britpop battle) and the sublime Jarvis Cocker
(who really should have become more of a cultural
icon). Although Britpop ended after a blitz of
cigarettes and alcohol, its place is sealed in
music history. Just as The Filth and the Fury has
become the must-see documentary on punk, Live
Forever may well become the defining film of the
90s generation. --Nikki Disney

Product Information for "Live Forever (DVD)" »

DVD Description

LIVE FOREVER is an amusing documentary that takes a look back at the 1990s and the musical movement commonly known as Britpop. Pedalling a retro sound and unoriginal look, a wave of bands--Powder, Menswear, Salad, Suede, Elastica and occasionally bands with more than one word in their name--were catapulted into the limelight for their 15 minutes of fame, or in some cases even less! Fortunately there was some cream amongst the crop and this documentary concentrates on the bands of the time--Oasis, Blur, Pulp--who truly made an impact. Featuring a host of hilarious interviews with the likes of Damon Albarn, Jarvis Cocker and the Gallagher brothers, LIVE FOREVER remembers the time when it looked like British guitar music was going to conquer the world.
