please post more often! I think you're totally on my wavelengthSaw this yesterday in Manchester with the wife (having literally just got back from Formentera). It’s a curious film. I don’t think anyone on here with a passing interest in Ibiza history will learn much that they don’t already know, especially if at some point you’ve leafed through a guidebook or read something like Stephen Armstrong’s ‘White Island’ book. There’s quite a lot of Ibiza cliches that you’ll have heard loads of times (‘Es Vedra is really magnetic’, ‘until recently there were farmers inland who’d never seen the sea’ etc. I also found the soundtrack pretty boring but then I’ve never been a Fatboy Slim fan. Think I groaned out loud at some drone footage of Ushuaia accompanied by ‘Right Here, Right Now’.
Still it is very watchable and has some good points - some of the old footage is ace and it really doesn’t shy away from addresses the current socio-economic issues - Matutes, VIP/vacuous selfie culture, high rents etc. Also glad that the Rampling/Oakie holiday story doesn’t get yet another airing. Plus Norman redeemed himself in the end with ‘Jibaro’ blasting out during the end credits, causing me to look at bleeding flights again.
