B&F 1/5: Pop star inner demons cliched rubbish.

It's just so boring.

Oh the angst of being in an indie band! Adapted from the excellent novel by Kevin Sampson ‚" former manager of The Farm ‚" Powder focuses on fictional band The Grams and their rise and fall; the tortured songwriter, the rival singer, the wannabe producers and the hungry journos all have their place. Sadly what worked in print doesn‚(TM)t quite translate to the big screen as the film jumps around with little regard for narrative flow, the characters ‚" and band in particular ‚" aren‚(TM)t given enough depth, and caricatures are expanded to such a level that it loses a lot of its realism. Nonetheless, still an interesting watch and the V festival footage is well done.
