The Crystal Method
A tribute to Andy Warhol's scene in Jorgen Leth's '66 Scenes From America', featuring NYC actor/author Macaulay Culkin, who is also a member of the pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band The Pizza Underground.
Initially , the only things I knew about Party Monster was that it was the flick with Seth Green and MacCauly Culkin.
I wasn't too interested in seeing either of them play two extremely gay men, so at first, I passed. But, there was still a curious part of me that had me wondering why these two well-known actors made this film. So when I got the chance to watch the documentary based on real-life personalities, I mumbled "What the hell." And I'm glad I did.
Party Monster focuses on the scene of the Club Kids, and it's proclaimed leader, Michael Alig. Michael among others was already some-what famous due to making NYC's nightlife explode, but he became even more famous when he was arrested for murder of another Club Kid.
The story briefly talks about Angel (the deceased Club Kid), then gives us a pretty informative look into the whacked out night-life culture of the Club Kids - where it seems almost everyone is bi-sexual or gay, (Not there's anything wrong with that.) and how drugs became the focal point for almost every single Club Kid.
It's not a truly eye-opening documentary because we've all seen crazy stuff before. But it is interesting. Michael Alig committed murder and is paying for it, and it's quite obvious that everything he's done, he's created for and by himself. An attribute a lot of confident and successful people share. Unfortunately his path to success involved hard drugs and the loss of conscious reasoning.
Check this flick out if you like docs or have an interest in this Party Monster story.
