Reviews

I'd rather listen to their music than watching that movie again

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought this movie was boring. You would think that a biography movie of the life of Morrissey, frontman of the Smiths, would be something interesting to watch but it's the exact opposite. Even if Morrissey was a shy young boy it doesn't mean you have to make a boring movie about it. If they told Jack Lowden to play as boring as possible then he did a good job, because that was spot on. If at least they would have played some decent music from The Smiths as the soundtrack it could have been a bit lesser boring, but even that was too much asking. There are some good biographies/movies about famous musicians but this one is for sure not one of them.

It is really boring

This film tells the story of the life of the young Morrissey, before he made is famous in the bank The Smiths.

The film is really boring. Nothing much happens. All we see is a very shy, socially awkward young man who refuses to talk to people. I can't see from the film that he is passionate for music. I can only see the passion for writing. There is little to engage or captivate the viewers. There is not even much music in this film either. The three scenes where posters of Oscar Wilde are seen may insinuate that he is homosexual, but this subplot is so undeveloped that it might have been better just to have skipped it.

Morrissey is not Hollywood!

I guess people give this movie a crappy review because it's not your average Hollywood movie. It's not a Hollywood movie. It rises above that. It makes you work a bit, and it lasts long when you return to the music of Morrissey.

I loved the music of The Smiths and Morrissey in the 80s and 90s. I was just a kid. The music was cool and it bombarded the airwaves. As I grew older, I paid much more attention to the lyrics and was surprised how arrogant, cynical, and depressing the lyrics could be. As a kid, I just liked the melodies of songs like "Ask" "There is a Light That Never Goes Out" and "Girlfriend in a Coma". I liked Morrissey's voice too. After paying more attention to the lyrics, I had much more respect for the music. It is bloody brilliant.

With respect to what Morrissey brought to the music with his lyrics and smooth crooning, this movie attempts to dig deep into the soul of Steven Patrick Morrissey, which is a daring venture, considering his worldwide droves of competing and critical followers. I believe this movie accomplished its goal.

The naysayers will argue that the movie is boring and vague, or that the filmmaker's representation is unflattering and noxious to the legend that is Morrissey. To them I can only say, "Go back and listen to the lyrics that create a window through which you might understand who Steven Patrick Morrissey was and really is."
