Film Review: “Creation Stories” Is a Rowdy, Yet Formulaic Story

My review for Creation Stories on Film Festival Today.

Despite its best efforts to be something new, Creation Stories is a generic biopic of Alan McGee, who founded the British independent record label Creation Records. The film starts off with a compelling energy that, despite all else, is maintained throughout its nearly two-hour running time…
The film’s beginning showcases a fluid blend of comedy and charm, of both the light and dark variety, in large part thanks to Leo Flanagan (Rare Beasts) as the young Alan …
But the strong start doesn’t last. The casual, candid tone is just not sustainable. Over the duration, it devolves into yet another tale of music culture that spirals into drugs, depression, and the ruination of something that started so innocently. The energy and visual flair remain but the fame and wild trips just start to feel tiresome…
if this particular music scene happens to appeal, then check this one out. You are far less likely to be disappointed.
