And it stars Klaus Nomi, of all people. I also heard that Bowie makes a surprise appearance.
"The Nomi Song"
For anyone who hasn't heard of Nomi, he was one of the most original and misunderstood artists/performers of the 20th century, a sort of enigma amidst a growing culture in underground NYC during the early 80s. The film, however, not only captures Nomi's essence as a performer, but also the movement in general to find something new.
I watched this movie for the same reason that I watched 24 Hour Party People, to get a glimpse into a generally ignored topic (well, not anymore). Anyone else see this film that wants to comment? I saw it at Universal and thought it was great, and the soon-to-be-released DVD supposedly has a lot of extras, count me in.
