About the Movie

Though culminating with the farewell concert the band played to thousands of adoring fans in their hometown of Sheffield, England, PULP is by no means a traditional concert film or rock doc. As much a testament to the band as it is to the city and inhabitants of Sheffield, PULP weaves exclusive concert footage with man-on-the-street interviews and dreamy staged sequences to paint a picture much larger, funnier, moving, and life-affirming than any music film of recent memory.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: These random encounters, as well as brief interviews with band members ... effortlessly capture the bond between this former steel town's spirit and the ineluctable tug of Mr. Cocker's lyrics. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Nov 18, 2014

Fresh: The appealing essence of the titular Britpop band is explored in Pulp, an artfully witty documentary that captures the "Common People" stars as they reunite for one final concert in their hometown of Sheffield. – Charles Gant, Variety, Nov 17, 2014

Fresh: A witty, warmhearted, imaginative documentary about the British rock band Pulp's farewell hometown show. – Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter, Nov 17, 2014

Rotten: Habicht's film never goes beyond idol worship since his film only succeeds at reproducing Cocker's myopic vision of his band. – Simon Abrams,, Nov 19, 2014

Loved it!

Really fresh approach to doco filmmaking.

Totally brilliant!

I really can't say enough about this film. It's one of the most surprisingly charming things I've seen in a long time. The film truly captures the sincere, shy, clever and at times awkward Jarvis Cocker that makes the music of Pulp so good and relatable. But more than Pulp, the director grabs the people of Sheffield and makes this movie just as much about their oddly entertaining personalities. The whole film is rather unique and carries yours attention through an unpredictable chuckle-filled musical ride.
