The theme is fashion, fame, flight and fall. The 1998 Velvet Goldmine explores glam rock and deals with the theme of androgyny.
I wish I had put more pictures of the three brilliant actors from Velvet Goldmine in my last post, so here is another one, with Christian Bale, Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys Meyers in looks and roles they completely owned. #Respect
It could be that there are very few movies which combine the two themes together and I have barely seen any, which is probably why this movie totally blew me away. It could also be because the sort of society I live in is very traditional and restrained, so to see these actors play people who are completely unhinged, rebellious, unapologetic about their sexuality, that too way back in the seventies, made for such an interesting watch. And the music was absolute delight to the ears! Like they say in the beginning of the movie – even though it is fictional, you must listen to it at full volume.
