THE MAN FROM MO’WAX

OUT 31 AU­GUST

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Tak­ing in drugs, ego and gra­tu­itous merch, Matthew Jones’ suit­ably cu­tand-paste study of ’90s record­la­bel boss James Lavelle in­vig­o­rates rise/fall bro­mides with vivid de­tail. Though del­uges of archive footage up­hold Lavelle’s pas­sion, he lacked the know-how to nav­i­gate in­dus­try shifts. Through the sketchy nar­ra­tive, an on-groove pic­ture of a man caught up in his messy mo­ment emerges. Kevin Har­ley
