Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets

Poster for “Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets”

This is the wonderful poster for director Florian Habicht’s documentary about some combination of the longstanding Britpop band Pulp, the 2012 culmination of its two year world tour, and many of the denizens of the band’s hometown of Sheffield, England. Few other bands would consent to a poster like this, and while I haven’t seen the movie, I bet the film will be equally idiosyncratic. Pitchfork wrote about it earlier in the year. The film is currently on a U.S. screening tour; it plays tonight in Manhattan and tomorrow night in Brooklyn.
