Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999, Mark Leckey)


"Mark Leckey’s Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999) starts with a grain-laden spectral blue skyline. Surreal but serene, the scene sets the tone for the film it fades into, a chronological collage covering three decades of UK dance culture that connects northern soul to acid house and hardcore. A peculiar, exuberant film, it is at once nostalgic and euphoric; a reverie for the ephemerality of countercultural abandon and its increasingly vulnerable position within contemporary society."
