Robert Taylor had the chance to speak to the director of an upcoming INXS documentary on their frontman titled 'Mystify: Michael Hutchence'.
Director Richard Lowenstein, who also directed 'Dogs in Space', explained that it was a "very long and complicated road of convincing one person after another". "We knew nothing accurate has been done before. There's been a couple of sensationalist tabloid-style documentaries, there's been a drama... But no one who actually knew Michael could recognise him in any of those shows," Lowenstein said.
Without that assault, he would still be alive today
Lowenstein's main goal for this documentary was to uncover the truths about Michael Hutchence, which was all done through research and the production of the film.
