"A riotous piece of story-telling...executed in a full-tilt, hell-for-leather manner recalling the frenzy of the Pogues' performances."--Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily

This documentary tells the life story of Irish musical icon Shane MacGowan, exploring the wild and roving life of Ireland’s most beloved punk poet.  The rollicking film details Shane’s explosive existence from his salad days growing up in Ireland to time spent on the mean streets of London to forming The Pogues and conquering the known universe.  We discover MacGowan’s passions, his humor and his deep knowledge of music, history, spirituality and popular culture.  We see the world through the eyes of the man himself, joined by a cast of close friends and family members.  [CC]  (Description courtesy of Magnolia Films)
