Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets

In "Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets", director Florian Habicht collaborates with music genius Jarvis Cocker - the front man of Brit pop royalty Pulp, the band who gave us "Common People" and influenced contemporary music like no other - in order to immortalize Pulp's swan song (their last live performance) on film.

Devoid of cheap sentimentality and miles away from any sort of eulogy, "Pulp" follows the band's return to their hometown of Sheffield, the place where it all started, where regular folk and dedicated fans from around the world explain why Jarvis Cocker's music symbolizes a way of life.

Eccentric, entertaining, moving and, most importantly, stirring, just like their songs, Habicht's documentary grants us an all-access pass to a side of Pulp we've never seen before. K.Th.

    One of the most beautiful and original films of its kind (nailing the Directing and Editing Awards at the Sundance Film Festival), "20.000 Days on Earth" doesn't just grant you an all-access pass to the mind of a fascinating artist, it constitutes a stand-out specimen of non-fiction filmmaking that ought to become an example.

    Heaven Adores You

    Heaven Adores You

    "Heaven Adores You". Which makes perfect sense when your art and your music combine heaven and your own personal hell. Every great artist comes with his own personal hell.

    What happens on and off stage when one if the most idiosyncratic bands in the world is performing live?

    Beautiful Noise

    Although it's one of the most radical and influential movements in contemporary music, having given birth to some of the most brilliant bands of the last 30 years and is widely respected by music biz heavyweights, no one has ever attempted to documents its history for the sake of the big screen.
