PIRATE RADIO

"Back to the Dark Ages of the 60s"

What You Need To Know:

PIRATE RADIO takes moviegoers back to the 1960s in England. An angry public official wants to shut down a pirate radio station based on a ship off the coast, because it broadcasts rock and roll music and other content that he considers lewd and obscene. Meanwhile, the owner of the station brings his young nephew on board. The nephew gets caught up in the iconoclastic lifestyle of the disc jockeys on board. When the government bureaucrat discovers a way to shut down the station, it endangers the ship’s safety. As the boat is sinking, the station’s fans come out in boats to save the people on the ship.

This movie clearly sides with the freewheeling, lawless spirit of 1960s rock and roll, including the use of obscenity and loose sexual morals. Ironically, the movie unintentionally shows that, when you have no sexual morality, sex becomes a free-for-all, and men have no restraint, even to the point of stealing another man’s wife or betraying a friend. There is very little plot in PIRATE RADIO, so it drags on too slowly. Happily, that probably means fewer people will be enticed into seeing it.
