United Kingdom / Ireland
2020, 124 min
This time around, respected music documentarist Julien Temple has chosen as his protagonist the Irish music icon Shane MacGowan, legendary frontman of the Pogues. Temple described filming him as akin to flying through a radioactive rainbow, but in the end there is an inner “crock of gold” waiting to be discovered by those who persevere. Through reminiscences and interviews with MacGowan’s family and close friends, Temple conveys to the viewer the elemental temperament, quirky humour and inward sensitivity of a punk poet for whom alcohol became a lifelong companion. Crock of Gold was coproduced by MacGowan’s friend of many years, Johnny Depp, who also makes an appearance in the film.
