Six Inches Forward, Five Inches Back…


Tonight at 7, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is screening at the RISD Auditorium, and afterwards dreamy director John Cameron Mitchell will be speaking.

If you’ve never seen Hedwig, you are missing out on a) the best use of Gummi Bears in cinema, b) a number of amazing musical numbers, and c) something called the Menses Fair.  It’s glammy and trashy and beautiful, and one of the best movies ever.

I didn’t want to post anything from the actual movie, because it’s worth seeing on a big screen, so up there’s Kim and Kelley Deal from The Breeders covering the song Wicked Little Town; it appears on a (really good) Hedwig tribute album that came out a few years ago.
