Richard Lowenstein’s documentary on the INXS frontman opens with footage of the band performing in front of a giant, heaving stadium crowd in their heyday, and we’re instantly reminded of The Hutch Effect.
As soon as Michael hit the stage (or anywhere, really) it was impossible to drag your eyes away from him. As one of the film’s many interview subjects/voices attests early on in the piece, Hutchence was a born rockstar just waiting for the songs that would propel him onto the world stage, and boy did he deliver with INXS! Mystify: Michael Hutchence is an oral history complemented by visual montages of rarely seen footage and scenes from intimate home movies, with audio commentary supplied by family members, managers, producers, friends, and ex-girlfriends (including Kylie Minogue).
