Matthew Jones' hugely compelling documentary examines the turbulent career of DJ icon, artist and record label owner, James Lavelle. Charting his rise and fall, from his early years as the tireless wunderkind entrepreneur, Mo'Wax mogul and critically acclaimed producer, to his financial woes, creative struggles and relationship breakdowns, the film acts as both a cautionary tale and a celebration of a unique, and captivating talent. Utilizing a vast array of archive material, Jones' doc digs deep into both Lavelle's business and creative processes, and his psyche, exploring the motivations behind his relentless drive for success and critical recognition.
