This is more than a documentary...

...it sets the record straight on public perception. In his final days, Hutchence was portrayed by the media in the worst of ways. This documentary brings to light the real truth of that time and indeed his life. The media threw everything but the truth at this story back in the day. They had everyone convinced, but they didn't know the truth. If anything, it just goes to show how influential the media are. Even me, a boy who lived and breathed the Australian rock band for a decade, was at odds with Hutchence in the mid 90's and the media's take seemed plausible. How wrong they were. Richard Lowenstein has restored the credibility to this fallen idol by populating the years with facts, some of which only came to light during the editing of the documentary. This is an important documentary, especially if you're were or are still an INXS fan. There are also lessons in just how powerful the media are with public perception of celebrities. The damage that they are responsible for. I'm glad that after 22 years this goes a long way to setting the record straight. Watch this documentary and celebrate the life of a guy who was a wonderful talent. Because you've probably forgotten how good he was and also will discover how good a human being he actually was. Thank you for the memories Michael.

I hope Mystify gets a cinema release in the UK

I really hope this film gets a cinema release in the UK. Websites state that it is to be aired on the BBC but seeing Hutchence performances on the big screen would be far better. Fingers crossed. Update Sept 2019. The film is showing as part of the BFI London Film Festival on 5 & 6 October in London. I'm going! :) Details at BFI website.

Emotional Beautiful Sad

Don't think I even moved from my seat I was so engrossed in Michael's story. I loved how it was made with just footage of Michael and his life, and the voices of those in his life just talking about their time with him. I was so emotional at the end I could not hold back my tears for such a beautiful human being. So grateful to see this documentary about a man and his his band who brought so much joy in their music to so many.
