think I'll see it anyway, maybe some bud will help me suspend disbelief, or I'll just be laughing my head off through the whole thing.

Also Scanty and Quando if you're reading... that post in the other thread is not me singing... just a bad joke directed toward that poster I was replying back to.

Just to assure you, not that you need it, :popcorn: I thought it was funny and didn't think it was really you singing. It wasn't a bad joke, it was good humoured and not denigrating as such.
By the way, I still like it as a fragment that could be used.
In some way, or the other. :laughing:

Brrrr-illiant line from the NYT review that misses the point:
"But its imagining of Morrissey as a self-pitying narcissist, a curiously passive intellectual who can’t get out of his own way, soaks the movie in a wearying inertia."

Yes. Sounds like a very accurate portrayal.

But misses the point as you stated firmly and to the point. :)

Its a little late to the dance...but this is a review from the venerable New York Times - and its blissfully brief.

Review: ‘England Is Mine,’ a Portrait of Morrissey’s Early Years
  • Directed by Mark Gill
  • Biography, Drama, Music
  • 1h 34m
By JEANNETTE CATSOULIS

AUG. 24, 2017

25englandmine-master768.jpg


“Heaven knows I’m miserable now,” goes a 1984 ode to alienation by the British band the Smiths. The lyric could also serve as an alternate title for “England Is Mine,” Mark Gill’s unauthorized and unrelentingly dour biopic of the early years of the group’s frontman, Steven Patrick Morrissey.

Unfolding mainly in dingy rooms, whose cheap curtains barely obscure the miserable Manchester streets beyond, this doggedly unilluminating portrait opens in 1976 with the 17-year-old Morrissey (a game Jack Lowden) immersed in Oscar Wilde and the New York Dolls. Fulminating with contempt for England and disdain for the daily grind, he bangs out vitriolic screeds on an old typewriter, the confrontational prose at odds with his diffident manner. There is also a great deal of moping.

With its bleak, yearning tone and defiantly cloudy color palette, “England Is Mine” has a pleasingly granular feel for its era and location. But its imagining of Morrissey as a self-pitying narcissist, a curiously passive intellectual who can’t get out of his own way, soaks the movie in a wearying inertia. While we’re all waiting for greatness to find him, though, three hardy women are around to nudge things along: A punkish artist (Jessica Brown Findlay), a hectoring best mate (Katherine Pearce) and his empathetic Mum (Simone Kirby), whose support for her sulky son never wavers.

Skirting sexuality and absent Morrissey’s music (the movie ends in 1982 as he and Johnny Marr are on the brink of forming the band), “England Is Mine” is a soggy schlep. But if you’re among those who believe that great art rarely foments in the cheerfully well-adjusted, then this one’s for you.
