Now I know what you all are thinking..... what is this?? Well I am going to add a review for it later this week so be looking for it, but I love this movie. It is all about Glam Rock over in England. It is just a staple for me in my movie rotation!......
I was first introduced to this movie because of my unnatural love of Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. But I was pleasantly shocked a year or so later when I sat down to watch Batman Begins to recognize Christian Bale's face from this movie as well!
The plot follows a reporter (Christian Bale) who is out to find some answers about the mysterious career of Glamrock star Brian Slade played by a young Meyers. While on this assignment we learn that the reporter himself has large ties to the Glamrock era and Brian Slade himself.
Ewan McGregor comes into play as we back log through the life of Brian Slade finding out that he was his fellow rocker and sexual partner for a few years.
The story, which does not seem like much has many twists and turns along the way leading you on a rollercoaster ride of glitter and platform shoes. It is sure to keep you entertained for the better part of two hours or so.
I gave this movie a 4 because there are some parts that can be a little slow and sometimes confusing. And while it may not be a five it is totally worth your time!
But a casual warning should be said. This film does contain ALOT of nudity, drug reference, and homosexuality. So if any of those make you uncomfortable then this isn't the movie for you. But if you love Glamrock or heck if you lived glamrock then this is a true movie for you.
What did you think of this review?
