你知道什麼叫狂熱,什麼是迷戀嗎?《紫醉金迷》能為這兩個詞落下適切註解。影片一開始就佈下疑局:心志早已消磨的記者Arthur,被指派去追查Brian Slade,一個曾經佯裝被行刺的英國過氣歌星的下落。Arthur初時對任務故作冷淡,但其實Brian Slade所代表的叛逆年代,正是Arthur封在心底十年的秘密。在追查的過程裡面,一幕幕解放性別壓抑的反文化運動伴隨性向模糊的崇拜而揭開,拆碎了的妖異七色拼圖逐一還原,成為渴求燃燒青春的最佳象徵。《紫醉金迷》背後的創作原動力,是對七十年代初華麗搖滾(Glam Rock)的潮流至近乎學究地步的狂熱迷戀,也是《卡露的情人》(Carol, 2015)導演Todd Haynes眾多作品之中,最被die-hard followers追捧的當代邪典。

Have you ever been a fanatic? Velvet Goldmine opens with Arthur, a downhearted New York journalist who is assigned to investigate the story behind the fake murder of Brian Slade, a young rock star rises in Manchester. His music inspires numerous teenage boys and girls, including also Arthur, to paint their nails and explore their sexuality. Unable to escape the character role of "Maxwell Demon" that he created, Slade plots his own murder and then destroys himself when fans discover the murder is not real.

Velvet Goldmine explores the magnificent world of glam rock that and challenges the seriousness of sexuality and gender oppression in the 70s. It is one of the cult classics of Todd Haynes, the director of Carol (2015), and it remains an all-time favourite of many die-hard followers of cult movies and glam rock.
