It's a "documentary" on guitarist Fred Frith, as he travels across the world and plays with a diverse array of local musicians. It's not in the usual style of a documentary, though, there's no exposition whatsoever and most of the film shows Fred Frith playing music. Interspliced are a few scenes of Fred Frith and the filmmaker philosophizing about music, and then stock footage from their travels or whatever set to the music. It's all BW, and it's got a great flow, plus the music is awesome.

Stardust

David Essex plays the singer of a 60s rock n roll band who starts struggling with the pressure , gets hooked on drugs , becomes a recluse in a spanish castle ,goes mental , writes a pretentious rock opera about his dead mother & dies.

Also has Keith Moon playing his drummer.

This topic contradicts itself. Favorite music related films but no musicals. I see said the blind man...

So does that mean I wouldn't be allowed to say 'Across the Universe'? Or when 'Sweeney Todd' comes out, I won't be able to say that? Those are both musicals.
