#4 - Hedwig and The Angry Inch (2001)

I don't know how to begin describing Hedwig and The Angry Inch, its one of a slew of films released in 2000/2001 that I really connected to. The music in the film is very memorable, the performace from writer/director John Cameron Mitchell is exceptional, he owns the screen, grabs a hold of your attention and never lets it go.'The Origin of Love' and 'Wig In A Box' are two of my favorite songs ever, from any film, from anywhere. Its one of those rare films that is extremely sad and funny at the same time. Originally a Broadway; the theatricity of the whole thing works extremely well on film. Just go out and rent it.
