Docs That Rock

Julien Temple’s Latest

Noted doc director Julien Temple last completed the Joe Strummer doc The Future is Unwritten. Now his latest film is opening the London Indepedent Film Festival and its about another classic ’80s band Madness. The Liberty of Norton Folgate seems an ambitious take on mixed culture of London as depicted in Madness’ songs and concert at the Hackney Empire. Perfect timing of course since Madness is about to release its first album in sixteen years and the film’s title shares the name of the interrelated song cycle on the new album. Somehow various areas of London are interwoven in the film and the concert is beamed on walls, pavenments and bridges and pubs.

Oddly, I have been scouring the web for reviews of the film from the festival and I’ve come up with nada. Does Google trawl that slow from overseas sources? If you’ve seen it, let everyone know in the comments!
