Far from the run-of-the-mill musician documentary that spends the first half discussing their childhood, rise to fame and move to obscurity, The Blueblack Hussar focuses almost exclusively on the now as Adam Ant tries to climb his way back up through small club shows after a decade a bizarre behavior that led to the revelation that he was bi-polar. The movie doesn’t focus on his disease or his very public arrest in 2002, but rather his aim of getting back on the stage, complete with his updated glam pirate outfits; often bizarre, occasionally heartbreaking, but always entertaining.
