A major new definitive feature-documentary. Suede: The Insatiable Ones plus extras. The film was conceived by the acclaimed director Mike Christie. Christie’s film-making career actually began while working with Suede, after meeting them during the band’s 1993 collaboration with Derek Jarman. His recent work includes the music feature Hansa Studios: By The Wall 1976-90 and the forthcoming film New Order: Decades.
Suede: The Insatiable Ones arrives 25 years after the release of their monumental first album Suede. The film was made with full access to the band and their extensive personal archives, helping to tell the story with unprecedented insight. Pulling no punches, the documentary explores the highs and lows of Suede’s career - their roots and identity, the media frenzy that surrounded their first album, as well as the subsequent, infamous tensions that led to a major split within the group. Also explored are the international, critical and commercial achievements enjoyed by their reinvented line up with the 1996 album Coming Up, the impact of that success and subsequent excess, and ultimately their 2003 split and recent acclaimed rebirth. Brett Anderson, Mat Osman, Simon Gilbert, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling are joined in the film by an eclectic cast that includes former band members Justine Frischmann and ex-Smith Mike Joyce. Also present are Ricky Gervais, part of their early management team, as well as family, friends and collaborators, including Richard Osman, legendary art director Peter Saville, Nude founder Saul Galpern, and producer Ed Buller.
