The Nomi Song

2005 NR

Through concert footage, still photographs and vivid anecdotes, filmmaker Andrew Horn celebrates the brief but bittersweet life of 1980s cult sensation Klaus Nomi in this engrossing documentary. The German-born Nomi -- who died at 39 from AIDS complications -- was one of the most bizarre characters to rise to prominence on the pop-culture stage with his startling act, which spanned the opera, cabaret, New Wave and performance-art genres.
