Velvet Goldmine DVD
SKU ID #340600
"Citizen Kane" (1941) meets glam rock in this glittery gallop through one of rock's most over-the-top genres. Christopher Bale stars as a journalist assigned to do a retrospective on the fictional star Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) who fakes his own death at the height of his career. Only by wading through the mood, music and make-up of the 1970s rock scene can he discover really happened to Slade, and to glam rock. Loosely based on the personalities and experiences of Iggy Pop and David Bowie, "Velvet Goldmine" (1998) also stars Ewan McGregor.
