Sporty fun on the Manics' mobile home.
What particular piece of celluloid shenanigans gets those Manics film glands all juiced up? Cheeky-grinboy Paul Newman attempting to mould a useless mid-'70s ice hockey team into champions, that's what.
Nicky Wire: "It's the greatest sports film ever made! There's this fantastic scene where they're all in a bar wearing dodgy leather jackets and everything. Paul Newman is absolutely pissed and he just turns and winks at one of the other blokes. That's one of James' favourite moments in cinema. We watch that a lot.
The other one is Gattaca [recent sub-standard genetic-engineering thriller]. Sean always cries
at the end Of that - it's very sad. And on the last tour, going through Germany, we watched The Nazis: A Warning From History - that's fantastic. The people on that are unbelievable. I don't think they realise just how much they're incriminating themselves with what they're saying. Right to the end, they're like, 'Oh, that Hitler was a good bloke.'"
