Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"just like seems to get Robyn Hitchcock you need to see him LIVE...and I can't imagine a better simulation than this wonderful little film. THE ONLY drawback is it is WAY too short! with DVD I have become expectant of bonus material and a few extra songs wouldn't hurt ..but hey that just tells you how good this is..YOU DO NOT WANT IT TO END. I wasn't a big fan before I saw this movie and now I understand why his fans (or cult) are so passionate..lyrics which are challenging (to say the least) great vocals (lennonesque) and a pretty stunning guitarist to boot...BUY this will be charmed and enthralled."

"I had seen this film breifly on Sundance but a friend of mine always turned it to something else saying "I hate this guy!"
Then I found what I was sure was it, even though I didn't know the title before I bought it. I took it home and watched it and was hooked; I continuously watched it and it never got old. I always find something I missed the time before. No one I show it to understands it the same way I do, but there's something special about it. It's like it's not just a concert video, but it's really a movie, but a different kind of movie all together. I reccomend this to ANYone, however, I've determined that this is the border of coolness. If you enjoy this film, you're cool, if you don't then you are uncool and you probably only listen to mainstream pop anyway."
I'm finally proud to be a fan!

"I've been a fan for years and years, but I have learned that my friends just don't see the brilliance in Robyn that I do - mainly because it takes a little effort on the part of the listener to look beyond the cheese, flesh, and tomato references to find the humor and genius. I saw Storefront Hitchcock this weekend, and the film is so well-made: the store-window concept, the camera work, and the songs that were chosen - all excellent. If you're this kind of fan, buy this video!"
Brilliant film just WAY too little of it.

"I love Storefront Hitchcock. However the DVD was released in Standard format only (full screen) which is way lame.
And Hitchcock performed many other songs that were filmed that could've easily been included here. the Soundtrack CD contains a bunch of songs not in the film (and the Soundtrack Vinyl LP contains a few more).
It's nice that Demme would make this film but why is it SOOO brief?
I mean his Talking Heads film Stop Making Sense is nearly two hours in length.
Come on, 77 Minutes?!?
It's shame that it took so long to be released on DVD/VHS to begin with but why it
was given such a half baked-release is beyond me.
Hitchcock deserves much better."
