Love Is Not Enough[NON-US FORMAT, PAL]
Love Is Not Enough was premiered the day before 9/11 to a sellout audience at the Soho Curzon Cinema in central London, picking up fine notices.
However events in New York the following day forced the movie off the agenda. A short late night theatrical release at the Curzon in 2003 didn't really do the film justice.
It was picked up for worldwide distribution by a U.S based company called Frontier Media Corps in 2004. The company promptly went into liquidation two years later with the proprietors transforming themselves into fundamentalist Christians. So it's about time this gem of a movie was put back into circulation.
Shot for a low budget in England and Wales it follows the jorney of a filmmaker given money by an up and coming Welsh pop group to make a documentary about them but instead takes the money and attempts to finish a movie he had failed to complete five years before. Watch in disbelief as he and his hapless crew attempt to recast the film.
The movie is an apt precurser to the digital revolution in filmmaking as the director finds himself living in the past as technology sweeps across the industry, lambasting organisations such as the BBC, Channel Four, the UK Film Council and "Reader's Wives" Channel Five.
Popular London arts and listings magazine Time Out called the film "an enjoyable farce to which they laughed lots" and the film featured on many television arts shows including ITV's peak-time Movie Nights where it was described as "a highlight of the BFM International Film Festival" where it premiered.
