THIS ITEM WILL TAKE A FEW EXTRA DAYS TO SHIP
'Anarchy! McLaren Westwood Gang' is being released to celebrate the
40th anniversary of the birth of Punk - director Phil Strongman was at
the heart of the punk movement chronicling the period in the book,
'Pretty Vacant - A History Of UK Punk'. Described as 'Fascinating' by
Wendy Ide in The Observer, 'Interesting...shrewd' by Peter Bradshaw in
The Guardian. Mike Wearing, producer of 'Edge of Darkness', called the
film 'the Apocalypse Now of art documentaries', while Kieran Cashell of
LIT hailed it as 'a masterpiece'.
However, 'Anarchy! McLaren Westwood Gang' is about so much more than the
short lived punk phenomenon and explores the notion of Malcolm McLaren
as the great architect of British Punk. The film includes candid
interviews with McLaren, some stunning unseen footage about his
childhood, his 1960's activism, meeting with Vivienne Westwood, the
Kings Road shops, and focuses on his key role in the Punk 'anti-fashion'
and the Sex Pistols and many others. Three films in one: it's a
history of European Anarchism; a biog of McLaren and a compelling exposé
of the real birth of the Sex Pistols (with contributions from The
Clash, 101ers, Bow Wow Wow, Adam Ant, Boy George, Don Letts, Tony
Wilson, Tracey Emin, Stuart Christie, Nick Egan, Vivienne Westwood).
