Suede: The Insatiable Ones
Brutally honest, this new documentary by award-winning director Mike Christie brings to life UK band Suede’s dizzying ride from Britpop megastars to breakup and back. Thanks to drummer Simon Gilbert’s handicam obsession, we don’t just hear about the incredible highs and lows, we see them. Whether it’s Brett Anderson’s drug abuse, enduring insufferably long tours, or insights by The Smiths’ Mike Joyce and former manager Ricky Gervais (!), this is a pitch-perfect study of one of the most intelligent, sexy, and daring Britpop bands in history. Coinciding with a new album and tour, Suede burst victoriously from the screen like the “beautiful ones” they were in the 90s.
