Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Brian De Palma's inspired rock 'n' roll fusion of Faust, The Phantom of the Opera and The Picture of Dorian Gray boasts an Oscar-nominated score by Paul Williams, who also stars as an evil record producer who not only steals the work of composer/performer Winslow Leach (William Finley) but gets him locked up in Sing Sing - and that's not the worst that happens to him along the way.

Few revenge scenarios have ever been so amply justified, but the film is also constantly aware of the satirical possibilities offered by the 1970s music industry, exemplified by Gerrit Graham's hilariously camp glam-rock star. Jessica Harper (Suspiria) appears in her first major role as the naïve but ambitious singer, on whom Winslow secretly dotes.

Prodigiously inventive both musically and visually, this is one of De Palm's most entertaining romps, not least because it was so clearly a labour of love.

Excellent satirical musical

Arrow keeps up their tradition of bringing interesting and entertaining films to the small screen, this time Brian De Palma’s wonderfully bizarre musical satire on the rock industry. Went into this as good as blind and came out considering it one of my favourite films of all time.
