The only other rock opera I've seen is Jesus Christ Superstar, so this was a bit of a shift. Definitely a welcome change in the songs actually seeming like good songs throughout, as opposed to hitting or missing from having to convey a lot more narrative through them.
Loved the movie, thought the acting was great overall. It's hard to believe Tommy Gnosis got as big as he did even with the songs and the aesthetic he ripped off of Hedwig, considering that he generally seems to be unconfident and doesn't seem like he'd have the same stage presence.
Super watch, thoroughly enjoyed it.
