The Blueblack Hussar Review

After a brutal 15 year period in which he was treated for bipolar disorder, Adam Ant returned with his six studio album, The Blueblack Hussar. Documentary maker Jack Bond picks up the story as the ultimate New Romantic hits the road for his comeback tour.


Veteran Jack Bond’s documentary of Adam Ant’s comeback from psychiatric ills sees him in good form of old: a funny, pugnacious, swaggering magnet for admirers. It’s a rambling, vainglorious chronicle with surprise ‘guests’ (Ronson, Rampling) and fun for devotees.

An upbeat comeback story for an enduring legend of British pop.
