“Moving, funny, sweet, eccentric — and the reaction from the audience, well, it’s the kind of thing that makes you feel like you are smiling with your heart. Two people who I spoke with were moved to tears. How many rock docs can you say that about?” — Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds

Jarvis Cocker and filmmaker in person! Pulp, best known stateside for their deliriously infectious anthem “Common People”, are one of the quintessential Britpop bands, so distinctly carrying their Northern UK heritage on their sleeve that to know them is to become an honorary citizen of Sheffield, their hometown. Taking that to heart, co-director Florian Habicht teams up with highly charismatic Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker to produce both a concert film chronicling the band’s 2012 farewell Sheffield show, and a “family album” of Sheffield regulars: the Common People. Habicht gets these vox populists to wax fondly about what the town means to them, and how Pulp has woven itself into the very fabric of the town’s lasting culture. “Cocker’s knack for keeping it real, for drawing from regular experience and feeding back into it, is the film’s effortlessly realised QED. If you ever had your head invaded for days on end by Pulp’s ‘Common People’, prepare to have it reoccupied, this time with a portrait gallery for company. If you haven’t, there could hardly be a more irresistible invitation to join the party.” (New Zealand Int’l Film Festival)
Dir. Florian Habicht, 2014, digital presentation, 90 min.
