[Hencken] makes a very persuasive case for Spandau Ballet's place in the Britpop pantheon.

The advantage to Hencken's approach is that it makes Soul Boys Of The Western World play like a movie version of a printed oral history.

This slapdash but endearing doc about the rise, fall and resurrection of '80s pop outfit Spandau Ballet is an inside job, packed with strong archive footage yet lacking anything you'd call truly incisive.

This trawl through the band's history has enough guile and guts to keep you watching.

The band wasn't that great. Neither is the movie, which, if directed with a bit more sensitivity toward the latent comedy, could have been hilarious.

Standard issue band history doc, but it smartly finds depth in a particularly shallow era in pop.

This has the quality of an illustrated oral history, though the incessant nostalgia and revisionist history are exhausting.

[Soul Boys] does a fantastic job explaining the youth movement that birthed the New Romantic genre.

You won't be convinced that Spandau Ballet was the best band of the 1980s. Even if they did have the best bums.

An absorbing and insightful delve into how the band defined the post-punk -- and consciously flamboyant UK -- music scene and went on to be an international phenomenon.

It helps to be a Spandau fan, of course, but the smart, layered contextualizing and historicizing of the group within the film makes it a gift for any pop-culture aficionado.
