ROC DOCS EXPLODE — Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman formally ushered in the new world of rock docs to the theatrical houses. HBO’s already done ones on The Bee Gees and Tina Turner, both which were amazingly well done. And per USA Today, there are almost 11 more in the pipeline. One on Sheryl Crow on Showtime was released two weeks back with pretty good reviews.
Since the theatrical success of those first two; I’ve heard everyone from Boy George and Culture Club to Joan Jett are getting them too. Just for the record, how about docs on Debbie Gibson and New Kids On The Block?
The final scene where 11 brings down a helicopter on the desert was worth the price of admission and David Harbour, as Hopper, delivers another amazing performance. Say what you will, Matthew Modine and Winona Ryder have been great, but Harbour is approaching Brain Cox-like resonance.
