Arielle’s Staff Pick! Todd Haynes’ ode to glam rock takes you on a journey through the music that broke through the boundaries of rock and sexuality with ruthless edge, and glitter!

What began as Todd Haynes’ (CAROL, I’M NOT THERE) vision of doing an official biography of David Bowie was denied when he was unable to gain the rights to Bowie’s life and music. Rather than chucking the project entirely, Haynes took advantage of this new opportunity to make a movie that, unlike your typical biopic, completely takes off into space, embodying the spirit of Ziggy Stardust and the other-worldliness of the glam movement itself, playing out like a love letter from a die-hard fan. Starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as glam superstar Brian Slade, Ewan Mcregor as Slade’s lover and Iggy Pop incarnate, Curt Wild, and a stunning Toni Collette as Slade’s wife Mandy. Featuring a tour de force soundtrack with Roxy Music, T. Rex, Brian Eno, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, with covers by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Ewan Mcgregor, Thom Yorke and Placebo, plus some impressively glam original music from Pulp, Shudder to Think and Grant Lee Buffalo.

Directed by Todd Haynes. 1998. 119 min. 35mm.

NOTE FILMS START RIGHT AT THE LISTED SHOWTIME. Roxie Theater trailers play during the 30 minutes prior to showtime.
