Hey, I'm Susan and I just joined. MOVIE TITLE: Velvet GoldmineCATEGORY:
I'm not one-hundred percent sure, but I'm pretty sure it would fall under genre. DATE OF MOVIE:
A reporter in Britain investigates the glam rock period, particularly rock artist Brian Slade, who disappeared ten years before while staging his own murder in a concert. Slade (played by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) is a young glam rockstar who encourages teenage boys and girls to explore their own sexuality. When the fans discover that this murder was fake, they are furious and he ends up a forgotten star. Arthur, the reporter investigating the fake murder ten years later, was a devoted fan to Brian Slade during that time period and strives to figure out what really did happen to Brian Slade after his "murder." It's mostly a type of biography of the legend David Bowie. It's one of Ewan McGreggor's lesser known roles as Slade's lover Kurt Wilde (another glam rock artist) in the flick. Goldmine
is not really a musical, but there's quite a bit of music in it.RECOMMENDED?:
Definitely. It may seem a bit artsy, but that's what makes it a so amazing. The costumes and the music are fabulous as well.Screencaps if you're interested
.... I cannot emphasize how gorgeous the costuming is.
