Watched Hedwig and the Angry Inch last night. Maybe my expectations had been raised too high, but I was disappointed. It wavered between trying to consciously manufacture a Rocky Horror Picture Show experience, and being a transvestite rock (as opposed to pop) version of Moulin Rouge. Unfortunately the ending didn't tie back to the motivations of Hedwig that I cared about enough to make it a satisfying movie. Might be one to watch stoned with a good surround sound system, or as the live production, but didn't really work as a straight movie.
