Hedwig is the best movie about failed transexuality to feature songs about Plato’s Symposium ever made by humans. Hedwig is a German glam-rocker who traded in her penis for a ticket to America. Tommy Gnosis is her illicit baby-faced boy ex-lover who has stolen her songs and made himself famous in her stead. Lots of hot rocks from someone who’s had his surgically removed and lots of rocking hotness from director/writer/star John Cameron Mitchell make this a cult movie that you don’t have to join a cult to enjoy. However, if you do want to join a cult, the Loft will be showing Hedwig with concomitant performances by a live cast. So go see it now before it gets all Rocky Horror and fills up with formerly thin goth kids and their sad-eyed, asexual lovers.
