    While acknowledging it is far from the perfect film, I enjoyed this movie for the most part. After the initial excitement of watching Frankie blow up the Ibiza club scene and generally engage in a life of coke and scotch fueled decadence along with the requisite groupie sex, the movie slows down as Frankie starts to go deaf.

After the initial excitement of watching Frankie blow up the Ibiza club scene and generally engage in a life of coke and scotch fueled decadence along with the requisite groupie sex, the movie slows down as Frankie starts to go deaf. When he finally loses all of his hearing, the second half of the movie picks up as Frankie spirals down and the movie explores some dark themes including depression, insanity and major drug/alcohol abuse while at the same time there is kind of a comical element to it because Paul Kaye plays the drug addled musical genius goofball character so well that you can't help but hate and feel sorry for him at the same time. If you have ever enjoyed a night at the club and all that entails you will probably enjoy this movie and the pretty good soundtrack that accompanies it. It has a bit of a spinal tap feel to it as well....if nothing else, the coke badger will be a character you will never forget! Expand

    One of my favorite movies of the year, a movie that sent me through huge highs and low lows. The soundtrack is kickace. I can see how some would not enjoy this movie, but for anyone who appriciates the club culture and what comes with that will love it. As well the cameo by the two numbnuts from FUBAR will have you laughing quite hard.

    This movie is tops. I like it almost as much as I like Requiem for a Dream.

    Will go down as a cult classic. Paul Kaye strangles his part to death and you just have to love it: he was born to play Frankie Wilde.

Loved the soundtrack, laughed happily through the film. Don't know what that says about me, but that's my kind of entertainment. Collapse

    This is very moving film that looks into the dept of our everyday club-nightlife, showing us just how altering it can become.

Focusing on the extentsive damage it does that most us are aware of yet continuesously dismiss. That life style creates an extrodenary level of enjoymment to the point that it out-weighs any other alternative around us. The power it has over the mind pushes you into an unconsious spiral of thoughts which eventually blinds you from anything other than itself. This movie goes into the detail of these issues that we know extist yet prefer to ignore, not even giving it the chance for us to deeply understand just what horrifing things it can lead to, that and the fact we choose to dis-believe due to our own ignorance and temptations. After watching this film it opens your mind to the over-whelming consequnces of what's possible, that once again you can't help but to disbelieve such awful things can happen. For any punter cruising along the social scene of nightlife the film is a must see! It will open you to think differently bout the film itself and how you can relate to your own life. Expand

  1. "Trainspotting" redux.
  2. The faux-documentary format does nothing for the material, but Kaye turns in a chaotic and ultimately moving performance.

    In addition to possessing the most confusing title of the year, Canadian filmmaker Michael Dowse's high-energy dance-club saga It's All Gone Pete Tong arrives in an elaborate package of spoof and deception that should win the admiration of any practical-joke connoisseur.
