Coogan told Empire
Like 24 Hour Party People, it’s a very British story about an eccentric character at the centre of pivotal events in British culture. I love the film. It has that strange combination of comedy and tragedy that Michael Winterbottom manages to pull off with a real deftness of touch. Like very few films these days it’s actually about something without being portentous. Oh and there’s lots of naked ladies in it too!
