Movie Reviews

Globe and Mail - 9/10 by Nathalie AtkinsonRich in period detail, it's as transportative to the shuffling spins, fashion subculture and euphoric, amphetamine-fuelled all-nighters of 1974 Lancashire and the cult-following DJs of the Wigan Casino as a documentary, turned up to 11.
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Katie WalshThe electrifying Northern Soul captures the 1970s British club scene of the same name with ethnographic detail and ebullient style.
Georgia Straight - 8/10 by Ken EisnerThe cast is mostly made of newcomers, and they are very good indeed.
HeyUGuys - 8/10 by Stefan PapeIt's impossible not to get a sense for that vigour, that blissful vehemence that comes with discovering new music at such an impressionable age.
Radio Times - 8/10 by Alan JonesLike a British Saturday Night Fever, it captures the look, energy and exuberance of a youth culture, while not shying away from the more violent and amphetamine-fuelled darker sides.
The Spectator - 8/10 by Deborah RossIt also isn't a film of light and dark. It's dark and then darker again, with no humour or sense of joy.
The Playlist - 8/10 by Christopher SchobertConstantine captures the invigorating joy of these songs, and humorously shows that it is nearly impossible to listen and not feel the urge to dance.
National Post - 8/10 by Chris KnightDisaffected youth and music go together like - well, there's actually no better simile. So how else to describe British director Elaine Constantine's first film? For one thing, it's got a well-defined sense of place and time.
CineVue - 8/10 by Adam LowesIf Northern Soul loses its way a little as the duo's friendship starts to unravel, with Constantine working in some unwelcome and unnecessary melodrama, this is a minor blip in what is an otherwise joyous and air-punching affair.
Movie Talk - 7/10 by Jason BestBrilliantly captures the amphetamine-fuelled energy and sweat-soaked fervour of 1970s northern England's soul music scene.
