24 Hour Party People [Review] | AndersonVision
24 Hour Party People is the kind of movie that was too new to Americans when it arrived. Now, it's too old for a new generation of music fans trying to check it out now. While Steve Coogan's performance is top notch, it's almost too avant garde for its own good. After the third 4th Wall break, the mugging for the camera gets obnoxious. Plus, parts of the film require an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the British music scene from 1977-1992.
