Marc Bolan was such an amazing artist, and we lost him way too soon. "Born to Boogie" captures the rock star at the zenith of his career. This film is half T. Rex concert, half surreal and artistic scenes, such as "The Tea Party" sequence. The film was directed by Ringo Starr, who also filmed all of the concert footage in the documentary. The studio scene in which Marc & T. Rex brings in Ringo on drums and Elton John on piano for a performances of Little Richard's hit "Tutti Fruitti," and then transitions into "Children Of The Revolution," in which Ringo is dressed as a clown, and Elton pounds out driving piano trills, meanwhile, Marc's head, surrounded in luscious curls, pops out of Elton's piano, is possibly the highlight of the whole film. This movie really shows viewers what a legacy Marc Bolan has left behind, and that his music and talent will live on forever.

Didn't like this band, but since Ringo directed it, I'll give it a try.
