5-question film review: Gorillaz Reject False Icons

Why did you go see this film?

I have a passing interest in Gorillaz’s music and thought this would take me deeper into their music-making process. (It did.)

What was the best thing about it?

Ben Mendelsohn is, like, the narrator and I didn’t realise until I saw this. Damon Albarn seems like a nice guy. A lot of the footage is him hugging people.

What was the worst thing about it?

No real narrative. It doesn’t quite say anything. It felt like the most boring way to present interesting snippets from the band’s touring and recording.

Who would you recommend go see it?

Fans only.

If this film was a type of food, what would it be?

Mashed potato with some peas in it.
