ENGLAND IS MINE REVIEWED
“England is Mine” is the Morrissey origin story. It could’ve been better if he fought Michael Keaton over the NYC airspace, but it works. What it doesn’t do is explain away the wild personality changes or explains away the darker points of his time with The Smiths. The film examines how stand-offish the guy is, but it portrays it like a painfully shy guy hiding away possible mental illness. Given how lovingly the film treats its subject, I’m surprised that Morrissey wasn’t involved in the film. Oh well, it’s still well worth checking out for Smiths fans.
