Phantom of The Paradise

Phantom of The Paradise

Directed by Brian De Palma

PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE, a rock opera take on the classic horror tale Phantom of the Opera, is Brian De Palma’s insightful satire on the 1970s rock world. Paul Williams turns in a star turn as a Phil Spector-like rock impresario who "sold his soul for rock-n-roll." This cult classic is the final word on the excesses of the 1970s rock scene and stars a man who was right there for it all.

A gifted rock composer plots revenge after a devious record producer steals both his music and his girl.

Cast: Paul Williams, William Finley, Jessica Harper

Absolutely one of my favorite films. Total cult classic. Stellar music, visuals, performances, and directing. Extremely campy, super fun watch.

Much better than I remembered. Feels like a cross between Rocky Horror Picture Show and the Abominable Dr. Phibes. A perfect reworking of the Faust legend. It is perfect.
