It is another movie I was quite eager to watch for at least 10 years, probably even more. Well, I wish I could say it was worth the wait but in spite of its decent cult-classic reputation, it didn’t really blow me away after all. I mean, the damned thing definitely had some potential to become something great and I have to admit that it was not bad but I thought it was rather half-baked after al... read more

“It is another movie I was quite eager to watch for at least 10 years, probably even more.

I mean, the damned thing definitely had some potential to become something great and I have to admit that it was not bad but I thought it was rather half-baked after all. Above all, the whole thing was quite messy. Indeed, it seemed at first that Todd Haynes didn’t want to deliver your average run-of-the-mill music biopic, so he went for a more original almost impressionistic approach which wasn’t necessarily a bad idea but, then, suddenly, the whole thing became much more straightforward. But then, they changed back again to the previous approach and the mo” 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. 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.
