Filmmaker Todd Haynes (most recently seen working on the magnificent Far From Heaven
) made this oddball rock opera in 1998. It chronicles the rise and fall of a glam rock legend and mixes equal parts Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars
and Eddie and the Cruisers
. Ewan McGregor, Christian Bale, Toni Colette and Eddie Izzard (looking very much at home) star. The film is far from perfect, but has just enough style and sound to make it a new cult fave.
