I’ve always said that the musical Passing Strange was the bomb.  Here’s what The Onion’s AV Club says about the film version:

Like Jonathan Demme’s Stop Making Sense it captures with visceral power the sweaty intensity and raw intimacy of a live performance before a packed, euphoric crowd…In Passing Strange irony, post-modern meta-commentary, pop-culture geekery and parody comfortably co-exist with raw emotion and aching sadness. . .at its best Passing Strange isn’t just good; it’s goddamned transcendent, a near-religious experience.

As I mentioned earlier, Passing Strange hits NYC next Friday, August 21.
