Life After Flash (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Executive produced by Sam J Jones (Flash Gordon himself), Life After Flash could have been an irritating fluff piece lacking any real depth or substance.  Thankfully then whilst it’s always a super affectionate look back at this genre defining classic, it’s also an honest one that looks at the good and the bad of the Flash Gordon legacy.  Oh and it’s also bloody brilliant.  Truth be told I love Flash Gordon and this documentary brings together almost all the remain key players (no Dalton sadly) for a look back at the film, the music and the aftermath of the film.  Featuring a super honest and reflecting Sam J Jones, peak Brian Blessed and a fascinating look at Brian May and Queen’s soundtrack, Life After Flash is a must for all Flash Gordon fans – old and new.

Best Bit: Brian May talks the soundtrack
