Pulp: A Film About Life, Death And Supermarkets review

Led by the lewd, laser-witted Jarvis Cocker, Pulp were in a different class from most Britpop bands. Unusual groups call for distinct documentary treatment and director Florian Habicht delivers in style. Centring on Pulp’s farewell hometown gig in 2012, Habicht untangles their ties to working-class Sheffield and meets diverse fans drawn by Cocker’s misfits rallying cry.

Band interviews reach the places rock-docs never go: arthritis, fishmongery… The result is an earthy, affecting and droll celebration of the unique alignment of influences that forged a great band – and the thrusting live footage rams Pulp’s greatness home.
