It's All Gone Pete Tong

It's All Gone Pete Tong

Mockumentary comedy (mixing real & fake peeps) starring British comedian Kaye (TV's 'Dennis Pennis') as real-life DJ, Frank Wilde. Trying to be a 'Spinal Tap' for dance music, so they say. Notable scenes depict Wilde's drug-induced hallucinations, one involving a cocaine-snorting giant badger. Title refers to a cockney expression, meaning all has gone to shit.

A renowned DJ, Wilde lives the sweet life on the club circuit in Ibiza - partying it up with the ladies & cocaine. That is until he begins to realize that years of eardrum-rattling music is making him deaf. He's suddenly forced to re-evaluate his priorities and begins to get his life in order, thanks to a romance with a beautiful deaf woman who teaches him how to read lips.

Colorful, sometimes endearing but highly uneven picture...

The downward arc of the first two acts of the movie is made harrowing and yet perversely amusing by the performance of Paul Kaye...

There are some powerful moments, but the film follows Frankie's lead in losing the plot - too dark for casual viewers (or fans of Tong), too blunt to succeed as cult viewing...

Eventually wins you over with its warmth and offbeat sensibility...
