A movie worth seeing

Just got back from seeing a premiere for "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"... a movie that is destined for widespread cult success. It's got the gorgeous glam appeal of Velvet Goldmine, with the audacity and fun of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It wouldn't even surprise me to see this become another movie that becomes more about audience participation than the actual show...

John Cameron Mitchell deserves great praise for playing the fabulous Nina Hagenesque transvestite known as Hedwig... his acting is so wonderful you'll be left with a pang of regret that such a wonderful creature does not really exist. Steven Trask, who wrote the music for Hedwig, deserves many, many awards and genuine unadulterated fame. Go to this picture, but do not go unless you are at your trash fabulous best and ready to become the show; this movie could and should become bigger than just something that winds up on video in six months.
