Velvet Goldmine: Glam-Rock Slash Fic

After exploring the line between public and private – and the notion of faking your death – with “Man on the Moon” last week, there was only one direction we could go in: “Velvet Goldmine.”

This one isn’t actually a biopic, but it DOES star Jonathan Rhys Myers as a glam rocker inspired by David Bowie, Ewan McGregor as another star based on Iggy Pop and Lou Reed, Christian Bale as a journalist writing about them, and Toni Collette as Myers’s wife. They’re all very pretty.

The opening titles really say it best: Although what you’re about to see is a work of fiction, it should nevertheless be played at maximum volume.


You can stream the movie on Amazon Prime, or rent it from all the usual places: Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu.
