Shane MacGowan – If I Should Fall From Grace (18)
“A fascinating, moving and powerful film that brilliantly captures a unique Irish genius” Jim Sheridan, Director
This unflinching music-driven documentary provides the first real insight into the background and career of this legendary Irish artist who, as lead singer and songwriter for The Pogues, became a worldwide punk icon. It demonstrates why, despite years of drug and alcohol abuse that have pushed the archetype of rock and roll excess to its outer limit, Shane MacGowan is still widely regarded as one of the very finest songwriters of his entire generation, who was recently inducted into the Irish Music Hall Of Fame (2005).
The film includes contemporary interviews interwoven with performance material stretching back to Shane’s earliest work, along with fly-on-the-wall footage from both London and Ireland. Both the highs, and the often alarming lows of his career are revealed.
