Hedwig and the Angry Inch January 5, 2003 Sunday

Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001)
Rating: star star star star star (5 stars out of 5)
Cast: John Cameron Mitchell (as Hedwig)
Director: John Cameron Mitchell
Genre: Drama, Musical
Run Time: 95 minutes

Wow...that movie just blew me away. I'll have to keep a copy for my own collection. John Cameron Mitchell (playing Hedwig) was simply brilliant breathing life into the character (he also wrote and directed).

The story goes around Hedwig, an internationally ignored glam-punk performer, who takes on a journey into the world of Rock and Roll fantasy in search of his other half...the one that will make him whole. The movie is poignant, moving, intense, electrifying, and the soundtrack is out of this world. Hedwig's angst-ridden journey took me to a realm of alienation and validation. He presented a whole slew of human emotional peaks and valleys that make him come out of the screen and speak to you.

This comes close to another classic rock movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show...but with more dimension and more humanity into it. It lingers long after the movie is over. Like a Shakespeare play, it can be enjoyed on many metaphorical levels. Choose that which fits your understanding...I have.
