Comedy, Drama
Writer-director Michael Dowse's delightful mockumentary is a work of fiction positing itself as a true-story biography of a legendary Ibiza-based DJ named Frankie Wilde, who goes deaf from too much noise and drugs. It arrives complete with testimonials from the likes of Paul van Dyk, Carl Cox, Lol Hammond, Pete Tong, and other real-life record-spinners, whose comments are interspersed with tales told by phony folks: the record-label boss who says he's "done harder things than drop a deaf DJ," the biographer who explains in a scholarly deadpan how Frankie lost his hearing, and on and on. This mock doc succeeds because it loves its subject, played with bright eyes and a big heart by British comic-turned-actor Paul Kaye, who plays Frankie as a chain-smoking, coke-snorting, scotch-swilling, scrawny twerp whose plunge from Glowstick Mountain is painful and real, but also comic and sweet. The boy, in his late 30s, at last becomes a man -- an apt metaphor for a club scene built on the idea of eternal youth, at least till the sun comes up and the drugs wear off.
