Nico, 1988 manages to find a new way to show us the last year of the singer’s life. If you don’t know Nico, then go YouTube some Velvet Underground songs. She’s not in all of them, just the Warhol era ones. Well, it was a lot of Warhol era. Anyways, she’s a deep voice songstress that managed to blend pain, heart and desperate longing into her lyrics. All the while, her life slowly slipped away as the light of fame darkened.
The film was shot in 1.33:1 and I hate how that is becoming a returning trend. Some filmmakers say it makes you focus on the characters closer. I don’t need to focus more, I’m here for the artist that I love.
