  • Is It Really So Strange?
    (William E. Jones, USA, 2004, video, 80 min.)

    'I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a thing to wear.'

    As the foppish and sexually ambiguous singer/songwriter of the 1980s music legend The Smiths, Morrissey brought intelligence, wit and mystery to pop tunes still unmatched in their ability to make grown men cry.

    Queer filmmaker William E. Jones interviews a new, but equally obsessive, fan base of The Smiths and Morrissey: Latino youths in East Los Angeles. The documentary makes the connection between The Smiths' working-class, Manchester-raised, ethnic Irish experience and that of the sons and daughters of Mexican immigrants in Los Angeles.

    Fans, gay and straight, discuss what Morrissey and his music and lyrics mean to them. Desire, self-identity and devotion collide as the complexities of the star's life and art are dissected by his devotees. Interviews with members of tribute band The Sweet and Tender Hooligans reveal even more about Morrissey's enduring appeal among the pompadoured denizens of the City of Angels. As one fan puts it, they relate to Morrissey because 'he always sounds sad and depressed and lonely: all the good stuff.'

    With Morrissey's recent return to the limelight with his new album Ringleader of the Tormentors, the time is right to revisit this singular voice whose music soundtracked the angst and drama of so many lonely teenage nights. This charming man, indeed!
