velvet goldmine review
Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are spectacular as the rock gods of the glitter glam and pre- punk age ...the early 1970s. Get the freshest reviews, news, and more delivered right to your inbox! Haynes' chronicle of the glam era is visually rich but too dramatically fragmented and overwhelmed by music to permit involvement in the tale's characters or the director's POV. Ewan McGregor was very believable as the pre-punk drugged out Kurt Wild but this film belongs to Jonathan Rhys Meyers. the ending happens at least half an hour later than it should. Reviewed in the United States on May 31, 2005. by Ewan McGregor. This film brought it all back to life.
Rhys Meyers and McGregor throw themselves into the makeup, the clothes, the drugs, the bi sex and the blazing music with a dynamism that is never less than mesmeric. ... lots of homosexuality, bisexuality and drugs. It's extremely close to real happenings between the glam stars of that time, enough to not totally consider it a work of fiction, but not enough to consider it a biography. Songs by the Dolls,Lou Reed,Eno,Teenage Fan Club,Marc Bolan,Andy Mackay,Roxy Music,Iggy Pop(wonderful butt-naked performance by Ewan McGregor as an Iggy type character). Velvet Goldmine gives the rock movie a makeover. Berlin, the movies,Disco era,80's club kidding(Let's dance),the videos,the reclusivness,the wife's book,the comebacks,the tributes,Blah Blah Blah,Cool World soundtrack, Hop Frogging with Lou.Halo Space Boys,with Pet Shop Boys..etc... excellent movie and retrospective on a time, scene and place.. Failing all else, you fuck your way in. This is going to be a dust collector. This is not the best film ever made, it's probably not even the best film ever made about rock and roll, nor is it the best film I've ever seen, - however, it is quite possibly my favorite film of all time. I've been backtracking to many of his older films, and the more I see, the more I've come to respect his obvious talent, charisma and overall joie de'vivre with every role he tackles. While some gay men's fantasies center around muscled jocks, cops or cowboys, Todd Haynes' would seem to be of a slightly more arcane bent. Want more Rolling Stone?
