Flame

Overview

After developing a cult reputation among Anglophile rock fans and glam rock enthusiasts, the sole feature film starring Slade (one of the very biggest British acts of the 1970s, though their success never quite crossed the pond) finally gets a belated video release in the United States with this DVD. Flame has been transferred to disc in letterboxed format at the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1, and the audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Mono.

Overview

After developing a cult reputation among Anglophile rock fans and glam rock enthusiasts, the sole feature film starring Slade (one of the very biggest British acts of the 1970s, though their success never quite crossed the pond) finally gets a belated video release in the United States with this DVD. Flame has been transferred to disc in letterboxed format at the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1, and the audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Mono. Unfortunately, both the sound and the image are a bit muddy in this transfer, probably due to the source materials, which look somewhat less than pristine. The dialogue is in English, with no subtitles or multiple language options included. This release features one notable bonus -- an extended interview with Slade frontman Noddy Holder, who offers an in-depth look at how the film came to be, how it was made, and how it was received. In short, not quite the package for which some fans may have hoped, but still a major improvement over the bootlegs of the film that have been circulating in recent years.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mark Deming
As more than one writer has noted, fans of Slade -- who were the boot-stompin' kings of blue-collar British glam rock during the early to mid-'70s -- probably weren't expecting a low-key look at the dirty inner workings of the music industry when the bandmembers starred in their first feature film, and three decades on, Flame still seems like a brave and surprising move for a band that founded its career on being loud, proud, and unable to spell. While, for the most part, Slade's members are just playing themselves, they're given just enough challenge in terms of dialogue and character interaction to make their performances genuinely commendable, especially Noddy Holder (who, as the frontman, does get the bulk of the screen time) and Don Powell (whose low-key, but engaging, performance belies the fact that he was still recovering from an auto wreck which wiped out much of his short-term memory). Tom Conti offers a smooth but mildly sinister turn as the band's new boss, and Alan Lake is lots of fun as the greasy would-be love man Jack Daniels. Director Richard Loncraine and screenwriter Andrew Birkin give the film more than enough grit to make it convincing, though in all honesty, the film might have worked a bit better if it had been longer; some more background on the characters and their circumstances would have helped, and for a movie about a successful rock band, Flame features precious little footage of Slade doing their stuff on-stage. But Flame is the sort of movie that gets to be a cult film for a good reason -- what by all rights should have been a low-budget bit of booze-it-up nonsense turns out to be a thoughtful and intelligent kitchen-sink mood piece that's better written and acted than anyone had a right to expect. In short, you don't have to be a glam junkie to enjoy it.
