Velvet Goldmine

A decade after British glam-rocker Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) fakes his assassination on stage and disappears from view, tabloid journalist Arthur Stuart (Christian Bale) is dispatched to deconstruct the legend of the bisexual pop star. In the process of interviewing Slade's cohorts and colleagues, Stuart gradually strips away the veneer of makeup and glitz, revealing the empty core of both the man and his music.
