TV watch: My Generation with Michael Caine



huskyteer and I watched this film yesterday evening and enjoyed it very much. I love Michael Caine and there were good film clips plus a great soundtrack featuring a lot of Kinks’ numbers. I must have been an annoying companion, with my ‘tsks’ and ‘pah!’s because, as I wrote way back in 2006, I refuse to believe that music and fashion changed the world in any way, or that the working classes asserted themselves for the first time in the sixties. Well worth seeing, though.

Comments

I haven't seen it so must put it on my watch list if only for the Kinks' music.

I agree about those who have really changed the world. Put simply, music and fashion change and exist in the moment, then to be remembered, often with affection, but nothing else. True change makes a difference to people's lives and to society forever.
It was slightly 'same old stuff you've seen before' but I love shots of London in the sixties, so I didn't mind.

Hear, hear.
