Movie of the Week: Shane MacGowan - If I Should Fall From Grace With God (2000)

Shane MacGowan, circa mid 70's, well before the alcoholism set in

This unflinching, music-driven documentary provides the first real insight into the background and career of this legendary Irish artist who, as lead singer and songwriter for the Pogues, became a worldwide icon. The film includes contemporary interviews with his family, fellow musicians like Nick Cave, his longtime partner Victoria, and direct one-on-one sessions with Shane himself. These are interwoven with performance material stretching back to Shane's earliest work, along with fly-on-the-wall footage from both London and Ireland.

This can be purchased on DVD here
