As the title implies, Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets is more than just the story of some band. Directed by New Zealand’s Florian Habicht, the filmdoesn’t provide a piece-by-piece career chronology, nor include glittery testimonies from other musicians.

The upcoming MIFF will screen 310 films from 63 countries with over 445 sessions. I asked MIFF programmer Al Cossar to give me a few of his personal favourites. Ten minutes later, I felt like Gob Bluth from Arrested Development: ‘I’ve made a huge mistake’.
