Movie Reviews

Teletext - 9/10 by Victor OlliverAwaydays is a wonderful example of nostalgie de la boue - the "yearning for the mud". The pic wallows in Mersey misery evoked by its music heroes.
Daily Telegraph (UK) - 8/10 by Tim RobeyWhat's convincing here is the pervasive unhappiness - the movie really understands violence as a drug, a way out of a void.
Fan The Fire - 6/10 by Sam BatheAwaydays comes close to being lumped in with every other British indie but the excellent production quality pull it through and director Pat Holden is left with another promising, if flawed, adventure.
Little White Lies - 6/10 by Matt BochenskiAwaydays is a ham-fisted coming-of-age drama that fails to say anything interesting about male relationships, violence, the 1970s or the peculiar northern soul of Liverpool.
Guardian - 6/10 by Andrew PulverTo these figures, Sampson applies an almost hysterical level of romanticisation, and it sort of works - especially when all the impossibly yearning post-punk music on the soundtrack really gets going.
Times (UK) - 6/10 by Kevin MaherAll around him the movie drips with atmosphere. The evocative sense of place is overwhelming, and perhaps the real star. Birkenhead in 1979 may not have been like this. But it is now.
The Spectator - 6/10 by Deborah RossThe performances are good, actually - particularly Bell's - but the film lacks any context... Ultimately, what's it all about, pussycat? No idea.
Daily Express (UK) - 6/10 by Allan HunterA meagre budget and a lack of clear-cut character motivations blunts the impact of what might have been a powerful Mean Streets-style study of male friendship.
London Evening Standard - 6/10 by Charlotte O'SullivanThere's no shortage of movies about Britain's mean streets and, for the most part, Awaydays runs with the pack.
Metro (UK) - 6/10 by Larushka Ivan-ZadehOne for shoe-gazing musos with a guilty desire to (vicariously) stick the boot in.
