21 And Over
Un documentaire qui rend justice à un personnage fascinant, mais dont on aurait tout de même voulu en savoir davantage
| Original Score: 7/10
While he was never a Top 40 hitmaker, Klaus Nomi was an important artist...and The Nomi Song is a cinematic anthem to his unorthodox individuality.
| Original Score: 90/100
Like Nomi's work, there is some distinct style at play that reflects its subject matter.
A well-made doc of a beyond-description music act that combined cabaret, operatic falsetto, and the stark minimalism of a cheesy 1940 sci-fi pic.
| Original Score: 3/5
The Nomi Song is pieced together from photos, performance footage, and talking-head interviews, but director Andew Horn has taken great care to fashion a strong story arc.
| Original Score: 3/4
This is fascinating stuff if you know just the commercial side of that strange music and fashion ripple known as New Wave.
| Original Score: 4/5
If retro ain't your thing, fear not; this doesn't feel dated in the least.
This film expertly captures the scenesters' singular, blinding devotion to art at all costs, as well as their playful and communal attitudes.
Mostly fascinating, but occasionally frustrating.
Paints a vivid portrait of the sense of play and possibility that animated the best of the punk and new wave movements.
This intriguingly well-made documentary tells us just about everything we could possibly want to know about the mesmerising 1970s singer.
Compassionate and critically astute.
A vivid portrait, not only of the man, but of an era, an era in which creativity ruled in a New York which, for all its vicissitudes, was far more welcoming to artists than it is now.
His career was brief but well-documented and Andrew Horn's loving tribute includes several complete performances.
| Original Score: B-
[S]trange and fascinating ... gives off a rich whiff of the New York punk bohemia of the late 1970s and early '80s.
Amusingly and wistfully records how the artist and his crowd tried to make a success of it beyond the Mudd Club and other downtown haunts.
The Nomi Song should go a long way toward recementing this striking creature's legendary status.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Andrew Horn's film charts Nomi's remarkable rise, his brief cult fame and his untimely flameout in 1983 as one of the arts community's earliest AIDS fatalities.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The German native's weirdness makes David Bowie (a Nomi admirer) look like Josh Groban, and the movie honors that by indulging in its own brand of effective strangeness.
Nomi Song pays tribute to both the man born Klaus Sperber and his anything goes era.
