Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Restless and kaleidoscopic despite its sometimes drab digital-video palette, this supremely self-aware docu-comedy canonizes two decades worth of Manchester bands even as it deconstructs the very process of rock 'n roll mythmaking. Steve Coogan is fantastic as Tony Wilson, who was at once pompous and populist, visionary and short-sighted. Through frequent asides in the direction of the audience, smirky voiceovers and likable self-mockery, Coogan personifies the contradictions that fuelled Wilson's remarkably diverse string of musical discoveries. Frank Cottrell Boyce's script risks alienating audience members unfamiliar with the large cast of rock-star characters; in America, where few of these bands ever escaped cult status, all of the grand pop-cultural pronouncements may provoke more head-scratching than head-nodding. But even at its most maddeningly musicological, the film portrays big emotions, big laughs and universal human frailties. The fine supporting cast helps ground Coogan's larger-than-life performance, from Shirley Henderson's swept-aside wife to Sean Harris and Danny Cunningham's voraciously self-destructive creative types. In the end, jack-of-all-trades director Michael Winterbottom nails the particular combination of a time, a place and a sound that can crystallize in front of a global audience, if only for a little while.

Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Like the music, the film is outspoken, roaringly funny, defiantly sexual and relentlessly in your face. I couldn't have liked it more.
Washington Post
Smart and grabby enough to work even if you think 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' is a bummer of a fortune cookie rather than a Joy Division tune.
New York Post
This wonderful party of a movie, as totally original as its hero, stamps on a smiley face that will linger for hours.

Like the music, the film is outspoken, roaringly funny, defiantly sexual and relentlessly in your face. I couldn't have liked it more.

    Manchester's Movie

    This movie, '24 Hour Party People' was good. It is about the music of Manchester in the 70's and 80's. With main character Tony Wilson, label manager of Factroy Records, with bands like Joy Division, New Order, and Happy Mondays in it. All the actors did a great job, but Sean Harris did an amazing job playing Ian Curtis of Joy Division.
