New Doc On INXS' Michael Hutchence Coming Next Month
The new Michael Hutchence documentary, titled, Mystify Michael Hutchence, will hit theaters on July 4th, with the trailer for the film just released online, according to mygc.com.au. The movie is directed by Richard Lowenstein, the man behind most of INXS' groundbreaking '80s videos, along with Hutchence's sole starring role in a major feature -- 1986's Dogs In Space.
The trailer includes countless clips of Hutchence both on and off the stage and features testimonials from former flames Kylie Minogue and Helena Christensen.
The film promises "Rare archive footage and intimate insights from friends, lovers, family, colleagues and Michael Hutchence himself, portray his life from the beginning of his fractured family background to the peaks of rock stardom and down into the depths after a freak accident in Copenhagen removed his sense of taste and smell and seriously affected his ability to deal with his unraveling personal and professional life."
Michael Hutchence was found hanged in his hotel room in Australia back in 1997. He was 37-years-old. Tiger Lily Hutchence, who turned 21 in 2016, is the singer's daughter with the late-Paula Yates. Upon her mother's early death in 2000, she was adopted by Yates' former husband -- Live Aid organizer and Boomtown Rats leader -- Bob Geldof and raised with the couple's children.
Shortly before his death, Michael Hutchence spoke candidly about laying his hard partying days to rest: "I don't go with all this thing about, 'Ooh, you got a baby and you got married and that's it, man. Yeah, see ya.' The hours are the same with a baby and I think it doesn't make any difference. I think it just adds to your life. I'm actually not interested in spending every single night of (laughs) my life till the sun comes up in a bar, or whatever. I'm just not as interested in that sort of thing anymore. I still do it occasionally, but it's just boring."
