Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Two glam rock musicians play electric guitar on stage
Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex, dir. Ethan Silverman, USA 2022, 99 min., English, 12

Angelheaded Hipster is the first documentary to explore the complex and revolutionary music and lyrics of Marc Bolan and T. Rex. Using archival performances, interviews with Bolan, Elton John and Ringo Starr, plus filmed musical interpretations by artists such as Nick Cave, John Cameron Mitchell, Joan Jett, Macy Gray, U2, Lucinda Williams, Father John Misty, and son Rolan Bolan among others, this documentary creates an exuberant and thoughtful examination of a true original: a glam rock pioneer, gender-bending free spirit and explorer of punk and soul music.
