Summary: It's quite something to behold. Fantastic cast, and an interesting interpretation of the world of Ziggy Stardust. Do not expect a plot that is easy-to-follow and clear-cut - because you won't really find it here.
Summary: Velvet Goldmine is a mostly interesting glide through the times of glam-rock culture. Certain characters are obviously thinly veiled versions of real life artists such as David Bowie and Iggy Pop.
Excerpt: I approached this movie as a fan of Todd Haynes' other music-inspired movie "I'm Not There", of the film's three leads, and of David Bowie and 60s-80s English rock. For my first viewing, I was impressed.
