24 Hour Party People
24 Hour Party People is the story of Tony Wilson, who started Factory Records, who later ran the world-renowned Hacienda Club in Manchester. From the 70's and Six Pistol's first show for an audience of 46 people, through the 80's and Joy Division singer Ian Curtis's death, 90's and Happy Monday's rise and fall, the film follows Tony Wilson's story of his fate and about a music genre whose cadre of devoted fans grow more for each day. Aftonbladet's Jan-Olov Andersson wrote that "The film has the nerve, heart rate and hot pace of rock. It is made as a speeded rock video, Winterbottom mixes digital video and archive material with the real artists. Exactly how much you like the movie, probably depends on how you like the artists."
