    1h 59min
    2008     Musical biography drama     United Kingdom

    Set against the backdrop of hedonistic, swinging, early '60s London, Telstar shares the stranger-than-fiction true story of Joe Meek. An enormously talented but quirky maverick who blazed a unique path as the world's first independent music producer, Meek changed the industry forever and earned adulation as a pioneer of British pop. He enjoyed enormous success early on with the biggest selling record of its time, Telstar, the first British album to hit #1 on American charts. But the flamboyant, tone-deaf songwriter was also a deeply troubled soul -- dabbling in the occult and addicted to amphetamines -- and his decline was as meteoric and spectacular as his rise. Bad luck, depression, heartbreak and paranoia soon lead to violence and self-destruction.
