Mystify: Michael Hutchence

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 10 August - 16 August 2019
Category Cinema Screening


Richard Lowenstein’s highly anticipated documentary on the INXS lead singer: a cornucopia of rarely-seen footage, Hutchence’s home videos and astounding music.

From childhood, Michael Hutchence’s onscreen charisma is palpable, so it comes as no surprise when his career takes off. With his exuberant voice and pulsating stage presence, he gathered fans by the thousands and sold records by the millions. His sensuality pops off the screen, and his love affairs with women such as Helena Christensen, Kylie Minogue and Paula Yates appear super-heated and achingly romantic. But a traumatic brain injury and growing drug problem brought the dream to a tragic end in Sydney, 1997. It’s rare for a music documentary to feel so firmly rooted in time and place. Lowenstein does this by keeping us in the heat of the moment, on stage or backstage, and the result is nothing short of magnetic.

M – Mature themes and coarse language
