Jonathan Demme’s rarely screened opus captures singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock in an intimate and engaging performance in a derelict New York shopfront.
Hitchcock’s dark, off-kilter wit is very much in evidence, and the songs are boosted by Demme’s minimal but breathtaking cinematic flourishes. A must-see for Hitchcock fans; if you’re not one, this upbeat and endlessly charming film will make you one.
