Much anticipated, the story of how one man, his friends and family, several bands, a Radio 1 DJ and the punk community of Northern Ireland stood shoulder to shoulder against music biz indifference, intimidation from paramilitaries of both sides and the police; this is a feel-good movie set around trying times in the province.

Englishman John Boorman’s innovative and atmospheric second movie – which seemingly came out of nowhere after his Swinging Sixties Dave Clark Five musical Catch Us If You Can – dragged the all-American crime film out of the black and white shadows of the 1940s and 1950s, straight into the searing, vivid daylight of 1967 pop-art LA. The result is probably Boorman’s, and Marvin’s, greatest movie – a superb, shifting, Panavision Metrocolor noir.
