Velvet Goldmine


UK / USA 1998, 122 minutes
Dir. Todd Haynes
Rating: [R16] Contains offensive language & sex scenes.
Genres: Drama / Gay Cinema


Aroview: An intriguing, visually sensational 'faction' history of 70s British 'glam' music, centring itself on the rise and nosedive of Ziggy-type Bowie-clone Jonathon Rhys Meyers. By turns intelligent, sci-fi surreal (a la Alex Cox) and trashily uneven, this takes a story we've all heard before, adds the right tunes and dresses it in a fresh set of emperor's new clothes.
