Belfast Kicks - Good Vibrations review by Sortilege

Spoiler Alert
12/04/2014

This is the first movie about Punk that I've really enjoyed. Partly because of the general chutzpah that ensures the film never lets up for a minute; partly for the skillful and intelligent use of news footage to illustrate the Troubles for those who may know nothing about them. Mainly, though, it shows Punk in a setting which makes sense for the whole aesthetic. Terri Hooley says during the last scene where he's addressing 2000 punks during a concert at the Royal Ulster Hall that New York Punks have the haircuts, London has the trousers, but Belfast has the reason for the existence of Punk itself, In a city where over 3000 people were shot, blown up, beaten and burned to death over 30 years, the pure and elemental joy of Punk seems like the only answer possible, leaving the cynical money-making machine of McLaren and Westwood in the dark. After all, John Peel said that the Undertones' Teenage Kicks gave him the best 2 1/2 minutes of his life.
