Mystify: Michael Hutchence
What really happened to Michael Hutchence, and how did the sexiest Aussie rock star in history die so young, at 38? Director Richard Lowenstein, who also directed many INXS videos, tries to solve the mystery that has been troubling Hutchence’s fans for over a decade. He talks to the singer’s family, his close friends, and his lovers, including Kylie Minogue and Helena Christensen. He traces Hutchence’s turbulent years in London, his life with Paula Yates, and his drug addiction. Hutchence‘s charisma shines through in the archive footage featured in the film: on stage, behind the scenes, in private moments and candid conversations. The soundtrack features some previously unheard recordings, as well as the greatest hits of INXS.
