Excuse me, but this is film is really not important,
because tells a wrong story without a good taste -
and plays Roxi Music songs to a character, who should be David
Uninteresting. Only a little bit about the history of "Glam Rock" ist

This would be fine but for one major flaw: the music is not Bowie/Iggy. It is originally produced glam rock pastiche and is so awful the appeal of the era would be mystifying to someone unfamiliar with it. Who then would like this film? I have no idea. There are some moments, especially late in a scene between her and Tatum at a dinner table towards the end of the film, where Seyfried’s acting works brilliantly in conjunction with Hallström’s attempted naturalism, yet these moments are quickly squelched by the sweeping music and melodrama expected from films like these. It is in this respect that I wish Seyfried and Tatum’s performances were given the opportunity to breathe. The actors, however, do achieve a level of convincing chemistry, even if that chemistry is built upon the fact that they are attracted to each other solely because they happen to both be very attractive. The brilliant Richard Jenkins, as Tatum’s reclusive and inarticulate father, is the only one who truly sells his performance throughout. I’m not expecting The Hurt Locker, but we as an audience deserve a better sense of John’s work and life abroad beyond context-free montage after context-free montage. Dear John is not a bad film, but it’s not an especially good one. The film gives hints of something better than what we typically expect of this demographic-specific fare, but Hallström’s vision fails to be realized as he never achieves the balance between the naturalism he seeks through performance and the suffocating simplicity, clichés, and silly dialogue typical of films like these..

A colourful masterpiece not a jumbled mess
I recently saw this film about a week ago and thought it was excellent.
The soundtrack was amazing and the acting, beautiful. However it didn't
really have much affect on me. Then one dull chemistry lesson, as my
mind drifted,I suddenly began to realize what a masterpiece Velvet
Goldmine actually was.
It portrays the whole era in a variety of clever and (according to my
parents) accurate ways. The love scenes whether hetro or homo sexual
where filmed almost lovingly and the speed of the film takes your on a
magical journey through the glam-rock era.
I think that this film has been seriously under-appreciated, and i'm not
saying this just because I'm a huge fan. Many seem to have problems
with the fact that the film is not in chronological order, that it
actually requires you to think. Because of this the film is described
as a 'mess', when it is in fact just a swirl of memories and flashbacks
painted in technicolor.
Also there are many complaints about the fact that Arthur sees Shannon
with Tommy Slade, prompting him to realize the truth. Has it occurred
to anyone that the flash back was purely for the audience not for
authur? that the camera was focusing on her but Arthur was looking at
Tommy? I don't think that Todd Haynes would create a plot hole like
that without a reason behind it. I admit that many of the scenes are
quite strange and random and need to be taken with a pinch of salt, but
this just reflects the image of the era if anything.
basically this is an amazing film that needs to be seen because if it
can awaken in others what it has in me then the world could be a better
place, plus I desperately need people to talk about it with, at the
moments it just my mum which isn't ideal!
please see it even if it is just for the truly awesome performances of
both Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers or a bit of homosexuality
and remember 'Man is least himself when he talks in his own person...
Give him a mask and he'll tell you the truth.'.
