With the vibrancy and pop of the movement it covers, TRAMPS! is a colorful deep dive into the New Romantics. A group of 1980s London artists and creators of film, fashion, music, and visual art, at times they have had their contributions minimized. The film runs through a wide array of stories, each as rich and engaging as the voices who tell the stories themselves—pioneers of the movement. From the tales of the New Romantics’ beginnings in the punk footsteps of the Sex Pistols and the Clash, to the unabashedly queer roots that permeated every inch of the culture, TRAMPS! captures the chaotic excitement of the artistic creation and evolution of this sensational era. Every figure sparkles and is given their space to shine. From Judy Blame to Princess Julia, every subject has a special impact on this pivotal and impactful culture. Kevin Hegge’s TRAMPS! celebrates and champions them all, creating a funky, hypnotic reintroduction to a movement we could all learn from. —B.R.
