The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

★★★ Di­rected by Mat White­cross. Fea­tur­ing Liam Gal­lagher, Noel Gal­lagher, Paul Arthurs, Peggy Gal­lagher, Tony McCar­roll Why would you bother mak­ing a film about a phe­nom­e­non so un­in­ter­est­ing as Oa­sis? They made di­vert­ing records, but there re­ally isn’t much to say about the mu­sic. So it tran­spired. More puz­zlingly, White­cross’s film

com­pletely ig­nores the cul­tural and po­lit­i­cal noise that at­tended the band’s noisy rise and weary de­cline. The film’s un­doubted sell­ing point is, of course, Noel Gal­lagher. He has much to say that is funny, but lit­tle that is il­lu­mi­nat­ing. 15A cert, Light House, Dublin, 121 min
