Interestin,g but flawed

I found this short while digging through the special features of American Psycho. It presents several viewpoints of the quintessential 80's scene - the partying, drugs, sex and "yuppi-ism" that ruled the town. A bunch of high-profile 80s club-goers and writers are interviews, and each has a really interesting take on the subject. The entire project though comes off as really vapid, and I believe that it was not on there to give viewers of American Psycho a mind frame for the 80s, but rather for the types a vanity and narcissism that ruled there. Also, using the same three songs on repeat for a 25-minute short really started to grate.

I can't recommend it.
