Until recently, Stardust Brothers wasn't available at all. Originally an epic flop, it was gladly left buried for decades. But this winter, the excellent Third Window Films released it on an all-region DVD/Blu-ray format. Now for a limited time this Japanese musical oddity from 1985 is available to stream through Alamo Drafthouse On Demand. Director Macoto Tezka, son of the "Godfather of Manga" Osamu Tezuka, was tasked with creating a movie based around an already created campy album about a fictional duo called the Stardust Brothers. The result is a bombastic, inspired, style-forward fantasy. Its basic premise is loungy and loud: two rival singers are contacted by a shadowy organization named Atomic Productions that wants to turn them into legends. There are catches, obviously. The whole thing is the stuff of stars and notably features Kiyohiko Ozaki, a famous crooner with famous sideburns. by Chase Burns
