Critics Reviews

Rolling Stone
Mitchell gives this post-punk, neo-glam rock extravaganza everything in his loaded arsenal of talents. He gets the sound right, the look right, the fun right and - this is crucial - the pain right.

I hesitated to give this a fifth star but Cameron Mitchell's performance deserves it. Simply put, I can't get it out of my system - brilliant, fierce, deeply moving. Also, "The Origins of Love" is a terrific song.

I just love this movie. The singing and acting are super. The story is complex yet simple. Love lost and love gained.
