In-Edit Beefeater 2015: The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson

The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson

Julien Temple. UK, 2015. Original language, Spanish subtitles. 91'.

'I should be dead,' says Wilko Johnson, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given a year to live in 2012. But Wilko, with a mad glint in his eye and a ferocious will to live, vowed, 'If it's gonna kill me, I’m not going out bored', and continued to play, laugh and live it large. Julien Temple raises a hymn to Wilko, which is a pure affirmation to existence and to rock ’n’ roll.
