I've been asked to put the film from the It Felt Like a Kiss show back up. So here it is.

    Looks fascinating – I've watched 20mins of this an enthralled, but will have to return to watch the rest later. Thanks to Adam and all that made this film. I didn't get the chance to see the 'show' element in Manchester, but the usual eclectic mix of archive material, effects and mash-up approach, best evidenced by the soundtrack. While this is common with much of Mr Curtis' work, it works very well here – even without the trademark v/o.

    There's one question I'd like to ask Adam with regards to the choice of title. The masochistic theme, or sub-plot if you like, of The Crystals song has always unnerved me slightly (in a Lynchean kinda way), and I'm guessing that accounts for it's selection here. But are you implying that the disparate and complex political processes outlined in the film have triggered a kind of collective self-harm in the west?

    Maybe I'll have to watch the rest of the film to find out... : )
