    Subject: 24 hour party people
    Date: Oct 6, 2004
    Sender: mattPrevious | Next

    the comment made on 24 hour party people was way out of order and cleary biased towards an obvious dislike towards tony wilson.
    The movie portrays all it should and does so from wilsons' prospective.there is no way it cannot feature him in a lot of the film, if it didnt there would be a large outcry as to why this didnt happen. i thought the film was a classic.
    just because coogan appeared in a large amount of the scenes does not mean that a large amount of the film was based around him, and it wasnt.
    Tony is the link between all the bands throughout the film, and the link to the Hacienda, and the rave scene of early 90s.
    24 hour party people, on the whole, is a good account of what happened from the new wave/punk movement of the late 70s in the uk, to bands like New Order and the Happy Mondays, it is a good account because its from the one and only Tony Wilson, who was a key figure in these alternative movements. and to say there is too much off him in the film is an outrage.
