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

My movie year 2017 (682 movies items)

"27.10. (Teatteri/35 mm) Muistan että tämän alku – jossa veljet jotain nussivat komerossa – oli harvoja minua vakavasti järkyttäneitä elokuvakohtauksia ollessani ala-asteella. Siitä tuli hyvin saastainen ja ahdistunut olo. Nyt en tätä skeneä ehtinyt työtehtävien vuoksi näkemään, mutta muutoin katselin leffaa suht mielenkiinnolla. Glitterinhohteinen, limainen ja huumehöyryinen maailma tunkee kankaalta saliin ja vaikkei yleisö ainakaan omaan korvaani juuri karaoke-esitykseen t"

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. And, despite the craziness, it's often a rather piercing and lovely coming-of-age story about the power that music can have on us. A beautiful oddity.
