Mystify - The Documentary On Michael Hutchence
As a huge fan of INXS, I can still remember the shocking day on 22nd November 1997 when I heard the news of Michael’s death. I still love their music today as much as I did in the ’80s. INXS’s music to me is like a classic style in my wardrobe, something I will love forever.
When I first heard about the movie “Mystify – Michael Hutchence”, a documentary which journeys into the heart and soul of Michael, I was anxious about going. Over the years there have been many false stories written and said about Michael, especially about his private life, family and lovers. But after reading many positive reviews of the documentary, which includes rare archived footage and insights of Michaels life, I changed my mind and asked Simon to take me as part of my birthday present this year.
Last night we went to the cinema Nova to see the documentary, and I am so happy we did. For any fan of Michael and INXS, this is one to put on your must-see list.
The documentary portrays Michael, who was a very charismatic, shy and complex man who spent many years of his life in the public eye, but he rarely exposed his true feelings to anyone that wasn’t close to him. You will see rare footage from his dysfunctional family upbringing, to the hardworking peak to stardom and insights to his personal life, including his many lovers, to the accident in Copenhagen that tragically changed his character and personal and professional life.
