Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets

Well-made rock doc about the Brit-pop band

Florian Habicht's rock doc follows Jarvis Cocker and his mates as they prepare for their (maybe) final show in their hometown of Sheffield. It's a reunion of sorts after close to a decade of inactivity, and, of course, the film delves a bit into their history. Artfully put together, the film is a pleasure in terms of its editing — a scene at a butcher counter, which could easily be pedestrian, feels like poetry. It stands as good viewing even if you're only a casual fan (which can't be said of all music documentaries).
