It's All Gone Pete Tong
Out Now On-Demand
Mockumentary comedy (mixing real & fake peeps) starring British comedian Kaye (TV's 'Dennis Pennis') as real-life DJ, Frank Wilde. Trying to be a 'Spinal Tap' for dance music, so they say. Notable scenes depict Wilde's drug-induced hallucinations, one involving a cocaine-snorting giant badger. Title refers to a cockney expression, meaning all has gone to shit.
A renowned DJ, Wilde lives the sweet life on the club circuit in Ibiza - partying it up with the ladies & cocaine. That is until he begins to realize that years of eardrum-rattling music is making him deaf. He's suddenly forced to re-evaluate his priorities and begins to get his life in order, thanks to a romance with a beautiful deaf woman who teaches him how to read lips.
Best Canadian Feature at Toronto Film Festival 2004.
