Magazine and going to Disco 2000 at the Limelight. Who ever
thought Clara the Dancing Chicken would make it into a movie?
Nightlife movies have a hard time, maybe it's always going to be a
problem trying to show you something that has to be felt. Even in
1995 when Party Girl came out, I made up my mind that movies
were never going to get it right. Where Party Monster succeeds is
in its focus on the people and their interactions. You can only
watch people dancing so much, and in the end it only proves to be
eye candy. Party Monster also succeeds in stepping out of the
Limelight and showing more aspects of the 90's culture as a
whole (e.g. the Geraldo Rivera shows). Of course this movie isn't
totally accurate, it isn't a documentary, but it is entertaining and
does come close to giving you a feel for the whole time and place.
