Oasis: Supersonic / Reviews

The tale is well-known, aided by its subjects’ knack for ever-quotable quips - two brothers from Manchester armed with anthems, attitude, eyebrows, and an appetite for altercation conquer the world. As with their Winehouse doco Amy, the filmmakers behind Supersonic imbue a familiar story with strong personal dimensions. Unlike that earlier, tragic, tale, the protagonists are still with us, allowing the Gallagher brothers to do the lion’s share of narration as they share the still-remarkable saga of Oasis.

Entertaining stuff - but odd to see the years 1996-2009 airbrushed out of history.
