Critic Reviews for The Nomi Song
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.
This is fascinating stuff if you know just the commercial side of that strange music and fashion ripple known as New Wave.
Paints a vivid portrait of the sense of play and possibility that animated the best of the punk and new wave movements.
Compassionate and critically astute.
Audience Reviews for The Nomi Song
I saw his performance on Urrg! A Music War back in the mid-80s and thought "whos IS this guy?" After two and a half decades I finally watched this and found out. This is a very well done documentary about an original and pioneering talent. His voice was unique, his artisitc vision was bold.
I never heard of Klaus before this documentary and I'm surprised considering he sang with freakin' Bowie! He is an interesting and outlandish character, an amazing voice, and interesting style that I think Lady GaGa in a way stole or at least was inspired by...
Never heard about this singer before this documentary. I thought it was really interesting and a well done documentary.
