Mott The Hoople - Under Review is a 90 minutedocumentary film charting the career and music of one of Rock music’s most influential yet all too often neglected bands. Despite being championed by many of modern culture’s coolest names - from David Bowie and Morrissey to the Clash and the Sex Pistols (not forgetting Barry Manilow covering an Ian Hunter tune!) - until now this extraordinary group has rarely had the recognition it deserves.
