Review Of Hedwig And The Angry Inch

Here’s the deal: Most people will rate Hedwig and the Angry Inch much higher than I have, but I viewed this cult favorite after having seen John Cameron Mitchell’s later masterpiece, Shortbus.  Perhaps I am simply too stingy to give five films by the same director five stars.

Hedwig is a terrific character, portrayed beautifully by Mitchell serving as a director-actor hyphenate.  She is strong (usually), funny (usually) and cleverly self-aware (always).

Mitchell’s eye is astonishing.  From color, composition and movement, he paints as much as tells this rather bizarre tale.  Even if you don’t find the story compelling (and I suspect some will not), the imagery should stimulate, catalyzed by a throbbing sound track.

This is a must see film for all members of the queer community.
