I watched this documentary from a different perspective than most, as I knew Alig and James St. James for a brief period in the 90s. I found that the documentary was inaccuarate, poorly edited, and sensationalist. While it does a good job of portraying Alig as the self-absorbed sociopath that I knew him to be, what it fails to do is educate anyone about the real story of any of the events it pretends to cover. Alig's "rise" in real life took place entirely before any of the footage in the film, which is all (rather obviously I might add)culled from the time when the club scene in NY was in shambles and promoters like Alig were basically just pied pipers luring people into drug addiction so that the few remaining club owners could deal them their drugs. Overall, the movie disgusted me, not because of the story it told, but rather in the way it told it.
