I'll be quite honest. I didn't understand it, and I doubt I will ever able to from a single viewing. But perhaps in the future when I rewatch it, it might make more sense; all that I took away mostly was that clearly I was missing something in my life before I listened to this type of music. I'm quite shocked and surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did, it reminded me very much of Across the Unive... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2016 (33 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 59min. First Viewing Velvet Goldmine is often a mess, but it's never dull or boring. Even at it's most bizarre, there is a strange magic on display here that won't let you look away.
