The public gets nostalgic after 20 years. I remember when there was a Monkees' craze in the 1980s. Then, in the early 1990s, young people learned about Jim Morrison through the Stone film. In late 1999, I told some friends, "The 2000s is when folk will rediscover Culture Club!" Well, I was off by a decade, but this film shows that it happened, at least "across the pond."

You don't have to be a Culture Club fan to enjoy this film. However, if you had the book "When Cameras Go Crazy" and if you read Boy George's "Take It like a Man," then you will love this. The outfits matched real life. The gist of the story is factual. It was like being a fly on the wall before Culture Club blew up. I never saw "Taboo," so I can't say which was more authentic, but this seemed very real to me. Their lack of altering the facts is a sign of the compelling story that La O'Dowd has. For non-fans, this will be a shocker. Boy George didn't always have a ragdoll look. Here he's more like a Frankenstein. If you remember the "Behind the Music" episode, Jon Moss stated, "He [Boy George] was weirder then than he was in Culture Club."

The actor playing Boy George did a wonderful job. Like Boy George, he has a smooth chest. The real Boy George has complained about his weak chin and this actor had a strong jaw line instead. The cover of the DVD resembles the American cover of "Kissing to be Clever." I think the actor playing Mikey Craig probably has just one Black parent whereas Mikey surely has two, but he did look like the bassist. In an interview, Boy George said Jon Moss gave advice on the set. The actor playing him also resembled him. They show him in a pair of briefs and that makes sense as he was the hottie of the band. The Roy Hay character looked NOTHING like the real Roy Hay.

I bought it because I had seen it online and it was not released in the United States. I bought it just to collect it . I bought the American dvd version format and I can see it all the time. I liked the acting and I liked how they captured the era on film.

It brings back a lot of memories growing up as a Culture Club fan! Their music will always live inside of me!

I bought this one since I'm a very big fan of Culture Club and specially Boy George, I rekon I took my chances buying it since they actually said something about the risk of not being able to be play it on certain devices.. anyhow I took my chances because I have a Zone free DVD that actually can change to PAL system but it still dropped me the "wrong region" message. The worst part is that it says on the box it is protected against copies so I won't even be able to copy it to my computer and may be burn it on another blank DVD to give it a try :(

I will talk to a professional I guess because it is hard enough to find a copy of this great masterpiece and not being able to play it is definitely a shame.. :(
I couldn't find a copy for zone 1 or 4 or ntsc.. I hope they actually publish a version for us Americans (I'm from South America and my DVD can play USA DVD versions but not this one)

The only thing I'm so happy about is that it comes with an original copy of "The best and worst" Greatest Hits of CUlture Club AUdio CD!! :)
I don't remember reading it from the description but thanks anyway!!
Great and unexpected PLUS! :)
