I, like every other Daft Punk fan, have been keeping up with the episodes of the Collaborators series they have been posting. In Episode 8, Paul Williams mentions a movie called Phantom of the Paradise.
Seemingly a cross between The Phantom of the Opera and The Rocky Horror Picture Show (which wasn’t even born yet at the time of POTP’s release), POTP looks amazing! It’s looks silly and fun and the singing, from what I could hear in the trailer sound incredible. I can’t believe I haven’t heard of it before.
It seems even more out there -if that’s possible- than RHPS, but at the same time looks twice as good. I need to track this movie down and watch it. It must have an underground cult following because again, I am so surprised I’ve not heard of it until now.
