Michael Hutchence was flying high as the lead singer of the legendary rock band INXS until his untimely death in 1997. Richard Lowenstein’s documentary examines Hutchence’s deeply felt life through his many loves and demons.
User Reviews: Because of the type of person Hutchence was, as soon as we first see him in the film you are instantly connected to the film – those big eyes that just make you feel warm, safe, and happy. Whatever the emotion you feel, it’s clear that his charm and impact on people will not wane. That’s why in 2019, a documentary about him still is a cause for interest – he’s an icon who’s still adored by millions. Even though the documentary isn’t perfect, I still highly recommend seeing it, whether to hear those songs again, remember the legend, or even to learn something new. Michael Hutchence’s story had a tragic ending, but it’s important to discover more about the person behind the headlines and learn the lesson once again about life in the public eye.rn- Chris dos SantosrnrnRead Chris’ full article…rnmaketheswitch.au/article/review-mystify-michael-hutchence-inxs-lead-singer-still-touching-hearts-years-after-his-deathrnrnHead to maketheswitch.au/sff for more Sydney Film Festival reviews.
