I like the premise, too. I haven't been to the cinema in decades. I struggle with new movies. I don't even have Netflix, but that's not an issue. I had no idea it had been running in cinemas. I'm guessing it probably has here in the UK too.Yep it's worth a watch but I'm glad I watched it on Netflix and not at cinema. It had a brief cinema run here in Ireland.
Surprised they didn't add "but i don't agree with morrissey, politically."
While I personally am glad if more people find out about The Smiths, I am fairly sure it's a temporary thing. Now DM has slightly more than 13M listeners while the Smiths 13,7M (not 14). Let's see this in a few months' time.The Smiths now have nearly 14 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
They surpassed Depeche Mode even.
They keep growing.
Yep, The Smiths are great! So good that they're in a class by themselves.
Agree. I will say though, that even just a whisper of some insouciant backcombing and a little bit of bedhead have always made everything better in life, so I will always have a soft spot for Robert Smith, who had the good grace to always know to put voluminous hair above and beyond all other life considerations and priorities.Yep! I wouldn’t listen to them or Morrissey otherwise. A class unto themselves.
As far as taking the pop song and making it art, Morrissey’s art, his uniqueness .. words, vision and that voice! surpasses any of his contemporaries and modern music in spite of their popularity or ‘success’.
Leaving Depeche, New Order, even The Cure in the dust !
