Time Out says

A straightforward account of the rise and ultimate disillusionment of a typical teenage rave band, tightly scripted and directed. The seediness of the behind-the-scenes machinations runs through the story: they are seedy whether perpetrated by a third-rate Midlands agent or by the suave director of a London management and investment company. The film (which isn't a moment too long, a welcome rarity) doesn't say much that you don't know already; good performances, though, from Shannon, Conti, and Lake as the all-time loser vocalist.

"The film doesn't say much that you don't know already" but largely because of this film. Before this film hit general release in 1975, this knowledge would have been more common to those in the business but not the general public. To this day, Flame is held as the definitive rock/pop business movie "The Citizen Kane of rock mvies." Let's not brush over that. It is a fine film that blew the lid off the industry. It has aged well like a fine wine. All the happenings are based on real events and I bet many in the business know 'who's who.' ;-)
