Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan

2h 4m Documentary, Music 2020

A cinematic exploration of Shane MacGowan’s story, from his salad days, growing up in Ireland, to time spent on the mean streets of London and embracing the punk scene.

To forming The Pogues and conquering the known universe, we discover MacGowan’s passions, his humor & deep knowledge of music, history, spirituality & popular culture. For this is Shane’s story. A vision of the world through the eyes of the great punk poet himself and an intimate cast of close friends and family members. Directed by Julien Temple.

“Temple has made rock-docs about the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Kinks and The Rolling Stones, among others, but his reverently irreverent approach has never felt more appropriate than here.” ~Jessica Kiang, Sight & Sound

“Unashamedly complicit with its subject, and invested in a hoarily un-PC tradition of rock ‘n’ roll mythology.” ~Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
