|Directed by||Jack Bond|
In the 1980s, pop star, Adam Ant, was at the height of his fame but after mental health problems he disappeared into relative obscurity. The result of over a year spent with the eccentric singer, Jack Bond's acclaimed film, 'The Blueblack Hussar', charts Ant's return to the music scene -- older, wiser, but still the erudite, charismatic, flamboyant figure of 30 years ago. Largely a fly-on-the-wall, Bond's camera is a revealing window into Ant's life: his overactive mind and his effervescent personality. Careering from London to Paris on a recruiting drive for his comeback bid, meeting a host of colourful supporting characters, and showing off material for his new album, 'The Blueblack Hussar' is a hugely enjoyable tribute to a true musical icon.
