Captures the period exactly - Telstar review by Pete W

Spoiler Alert
26/10/2010

First class account of the tragic 60s indie record producer Joe Meek and his descent into paranoia. Con O'Neill is outstanding but well supported by the whole cast including Kevin Spacey, Pam Ferris and JJ Feild in the unsympathetic role of blond bombshell Heinz. Even James Corden isn't bad. Particularly good at the evocation of London in the early 1960s - I want a red Ford Classic!

Dreadful. - Telstar review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
21/01/2011

The main character of this film appears to have no redeeming characteristics and as such endeers no sympathy.

Save your self the time and fast forward straight to the end.
