Movie Summary

Director:
Jonathan Demme
Released:
1998
Rating:
PG-13
Storefront Hitchcock is a hybrid of live concert and feature-length conceptual music video built around the songs of the English neo-psychedelic singer and songwriter Robyn Hitchcock, and directed by the famed Jonathan Demme (Stop Making Sense, Married to the Mob, Silence of the Lambs). The setting for Hitchcock's twelve songs is an empty storefront window in New York City; as the solo Hitchcock works his way through his set list, his back to the crowd outside, other musicians join him from time to time, along with the occasional puppet or other unusual visual touch. All is punctuated with Hitchcock's trademark non sequitur-laden monologues. The songs range over a ten-year period from the latter part of his work with Egyptians ("Freeze," "The Yip Song") to a few songs from his 1996 album Moss Elixir ("Beautiful Queen," "Alright, Yeah"). An added bonus for Hitchcock fans is his rendition of the Jimi Hendrix classic "The Wind Cries Mary."
