Taking the film Rent on its own terms, it succeeds as rock opera, and its likely target audience won't be upset that the original lovely, lyrical score has been translated to a group of mostly pounding rock songs.
This just might be the single most shockingly good movie I've seen all year, and with as underwhelming as much of this fall's more high profile flicks have been Rent couldn't have come at a better time.
