Aro Recommended It's All Gone Pete Tong

 

UK 2004, 92 minutes
Dir. Michael Dowse
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Comedy, Music / R&B/Hip-hop

Topics: Mock-umentary.

 

Aroview: Documentary-mockumentary comedy about the notoriously hedonistic dance DJ Frankie Wilde (Kaye), who rode the wave of 1990s Ibiza club culture for all it was worth, then found he was going permanently deaf.

Beginning with a satirical stab at druggy wastedness and pretension, once Kaye's affliction kicks in his attempts to hide his deafness during dance sets become cringeingly pathetic. From this point the film deepens into a far meatier tragicomedy of romance and redemption, providing a neat progression on the usually predictable rave dramas. Kaye (better known as TV's 'Dennis Pennis') also provides an admirable underlay of clownish, comic intensity. Note: the title is Cockney rhyming slang for 'it's all gone wrong'.
