Reviews

Britse biopic uit 2010 van regisseur Mat Whitecross, met Andy Serkis, Tom Hughes e.a. De filmtitel is de titel van een van Ian Dury's bekendste songs. Levensverhaal van Ian Dury die als kind polio had en tegen alle verwachtingen in de stichter van de punk-rock scene in Groot-Brittannië in de zeventiger jaren van de 20e eeuw werd. Clark Douglas (Dvd Verdict,i) geeft 79 (van 100) punten: 'Serkis perfectly captures Dury's blend of wicked charm and monstrous ego. His performance was deservedly nominated for all kinds of awards in Britain. (...) If you're a fan of Ian Dury or if you simply want to see a knockout lead performance from Andy Serkis, the film is worth a look.' Verder vertelt hij dat Dury in de Verenigde Staten volkomen onbekend is. Andrew O'Hagan (London Evening Standard,i): '(...) likely to be one of the best film portrayals of the year.' Nominaties voor een Bafta 2010 voor Best Leading actor, idem voor British Independent Film Award en vele andere filmprijzen.
