Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Hedwig: Love the front of me, honey!

I'm trying to ignore the fact that John Cameron Mitchell is doing a Hedwig-adjacent show here in New York for a few days later this week since I don't have tickets -- thankfully I do have the just released yesterday Criterion blu-ray of this film and I can soak my sadness in its glorious reams of special features. Docs and a cast reunion and a 4K restoration, oh my goddess it's great. If that's not enough, and Hedwig would agree that too much is never, there's a terrific chat with JCM at Vanity Fair this week where he talks the film and manages to bitch-slap a certain recent cinematic abortion while he's at it, bless him:

"Everyone knew Bohemian Rhapsody was gonna suck. 
Why did they go see it? I don’t get it.”
