    I went to the release party in NYC.

    I had no idea Macaulay Culkin was in it as Michael. THAT IS FUCKING HILARIOUS.

    They were giving away free soundtracks and I remember everyone taking one and putting it back. Haha. Including me.

    It looks SOOOOOOO bad.

    I LOVED the documentary though. Saw it VERY stoned and then watched it again and still loved it.

    I recommend anyone rent it for a good laugh.

    Me calling Rogers in the Beaches: "Um.. I was wondering if you have.. um, a movie called 'Party Monster...'"

    It was so embarrassing.

    The docu will make you never want to do drugs again. The Clubkids all turned out to be CRACKED OUT. Wow.

    ps: disco bloodbath 4ever

    pps: the road of excess leads to the temple of... fabulousness.

    ppps: the performance during the "clubkyd of america" tour is great and macauley should be an electrotrash super star.

    review from Eye magazine:

    Starring Macaulay Culkin, Seth Green. Written and directed by Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato. (STC) 97 min. Opens Oct 24.

    From Seth Green and Macaulay Culkin wrestling for control of the narrative during Party Monster's opening minutes, to Culkin's conversation with a giant rat near the end, almost everything about Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato's look at New York's crazed club scene is totally superficial.

    In this case, that's a good thing. Party Monster is based on Disco Bloodbath, James St. James' written chronicle of the Club Kids, a group of audacious partiers who ruled Manhattan's Limelight club in the late-'80s and early-'90s. Green plays St. James, whose status as the circuit's preferred enfant terrible wanes when Michael Alig (Macaulay Culkin) infiltrates the scene and proceeds to turn himself into a flamboyant, androgynous messiah to a small group of drugged-out, postmodern dandies.

    The film follows Alig from his rise, through his relationship with superstar DJ Keoki (Wilmer Valderrama), to his arrest for the killing of his drug dealer, Angel (Wilson Cruz). Culkin still can't really act, but his creepy quavering smile and hollow delivery make him perfect for the role of gingerbread psychopath Alig, whose obsession with image enslaved his personality, and eventually his humanity, entirely. (Alig still maintains a rather disturbing website, www.michaelaligclubkids.com, from prison.)

    Like Alig, the film is often consumed by image; it's art-directed to a fault, and Michael Wilkinson's garish, fabulous costumes steal the show from everyone wearing them. Often, the filmmakers get so caught up in recreating the outrageous visual environment the Club Kids carried with them that other elements of the film get left behind. Many of the characters' relationships are underdeveloped (particularly the one between Alig and Angel), and as Alig spirals into drug meltdown, the picture gets mired in gloopy camera effects and visual wankery.

    But the lack of substance ultimately adds to the mood: flamboyant unconcern underlined by apocalyptic decadence. And while Culkin seems to be good by accident, Green plays bored artifice with surprising range. Fittingly, it's his St. James who finally wins the right to tell the story; more often than not, Party Monster is his film. JOEL MCCONVEY

    I saw some clips and I think I have to agree that Macauley STILL can't act. He was pretty bad...which might be good for this role?
    Looking forward to seeing how Seth Green pulls of St. James...

    i wouldn't trust rotten tomatoes on this one

    this isn't a movie for the average reviewer/critic ... i think
    our 'nightlife inspired' community will probably like it much more
