“Painfully honest and deeply moving … Mike Christie’s portrait of Brett Anderson’s 1990s glam-pop outsiders gets everything right.” – The Sunday Times

As snake-hipped harbingers of Britpop, Suede reluctantly set the course. Step 1: Write ornate, soaring melodramas spiced with rollicking glam. Step 2: Take too many drugs. Step 3: Air your dirty laundry. Step 4: Take over the charts.

Award-winning British director Mike Christie tracks Suede’s florid reign with a stark honesty. Candid behind-the-scenes footage – thanks to drummer Simon Gilbert’s handicam obsession – delivers us into the studio and onto the stage. Interviews with former bassist Justine Frischmann (Elastica), former manager Ricky Gervais, Mike Joyce (The Smiths), and other luminaries deepen the portrait. Like the music itself, The Insatiable Ones is timely, nakedly emotional and ultimately triumphant.

“Fascinating and uncomfortable, brutally honest and painfully raw.” – Disarm Magazine
