Luke Haines is often described as one of the great English contemporary songwriters, a man who launched Britpop and jumped ship as soon as it set sail. His wry commentaries respect few boundaries and his musical arrangements are uniquely suited to both the worlds of music and film. Art Will Save The World explores the work, legacy, struggles, battles and the future of this perennial outsider of Britpop and the British music scene.
_ [The film] treats Haines’ mind as it’s always been: disturbing, intelligent, darkly curious without qualms or apology, and very, very funny_. – The Quietus
