Winner of four international film awards including “BEST COSTUME DESIGN”, “BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY” and “BEST DIRECTOR”

“There are moments when Velvet Goldmine threatens to collapse under the weight of writer/director Todd Haynes' (Poison, Safe) ambition. But, sometimes amazingly, it doesn't, becoming in the process one of the year's freshest, most exciting films.”
   Keith Phipps, The A.V. Club

“The music and camera work are dazzling, and the story has solid sociological insights into a fascinating pop-culture period.”
   David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor

  1. :

    This film absolutely glitters. Literally. It can be enjoyed on so many levels: the twisting, turning plot; the scrumptiousness of Ewan McGregor (looking eerily KurtCobain-esque) and Jonathan Rhys Meyers; the jump-up-and-down-on-your-bed-and-annoy-the-hell-out-of-your-parents music (the whole soundtrack is excellent); or just for the sheer adrenaline (and coke) fuelled rush through glam, which is so FUN.
    Only to be watched if you’re prepared to get into the spirit of things and embrace the glitter. Most definately to be played at maximum volume.
