The New York club scene of the 80s and 90s was a world like no other. Into this candy-colored, mirror ball playground stepped Michael Alig, a wannabe from nowhere special. Under the watchful eye of veteran club kid James St. James, Alig quickly rose to the top... and there was no place to go but down.
Earlier tonight I was kind of seeing this one girl. Then she showed me Party Monster. I'm not seeing her anymore.
This god damned movie.
I'm not exactly sure this movie exists and isn't just a fever dream I had.
Because this movie is 90 minutes of Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green doing drugs and killing people and serving club kid realness and breaking the fourth wall and doing more drugs and it looks like it can't have cost more than five dollars to make and it completely doesn't give a shit about whether or not you like it and it's so fucking weird and magical you guys. This fucking movie.
It's camp factor is cranked up to 100 and it knows it. The acting is all over the place, Culkin and Green are so over the top in their roles, but it works since the rest of the movie is one big colorful drug trip of decadence and bizarre people.
Also one of my favorite films of all time. Money, success, fame, glamour. For we are living in the age of the thing. Macaulay Culkin is just perfect in it.
Seen it at least 5 times and one way or another I always miss parts. When I see it the next time, I have a feeling like I've never seen some parts before, how is this possible. The same thing happens when I watch 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas'. That's why I love it too.
The fucking COSTUMES. Culkin is terrible.
Lester from Beakman's World will always be my favorite man in a rat suit
This movie is everything, a great open-eyes to every club kid...
lord (seeing st. james in person this past year at dragcon--which, idk why I thought I would enjoy a con, yet there I went--was fun)
I liked the kind of meta-narrative, fourth wall approach of the movie, but otherwise this movie is a pretty meh rise & fall kind of story.
Watched this for Big Shot Movie Club.
La proyectaron en un bar al que fui con unos amigos y llamó mi atención que la protagonizara Macaulay Culkin y Seth Green, dos de mis favoritos, uno por todo el personaje alrededor de él y sus trabajos como niño actor y el otro por su serie animada Robot Chicken.
Entre los tragos y la plática, de repente noté que Chloë Sevigny aparecía también y como la amo con locura decidí que en cuanto tuviera tiempo la vería.
No está tan mal, tiene una escena muy bonita con Chloë Sevigny y Macaulay Culkin en una tina de baño y además me hizo aprender sobre un movimiento que no conocía los "Club Kids", que es como lo que ahora hace RuPaul,…
Awful - Just Awful!! Lasted all of 8 minutes & 36 seconds before I decided enough was enough 👎
The fucking COSTUMES. Culkin is terrible.
I went into this with a strange set of expectations, I heard of it a lot, but put off due to mainly my contempt for Seth Green. As of recently I have been hearing/learning more and more about the situation, Alig's background and of James St. James and the club kid scene. (He even just got released!) So I decided, hey, why not? This is a cult film, weird fashion, it should be fun.
The quality of the film stood out to me first. It looked like a UK mini-series edited into being a feature film. Green & Culkin star as James St. James & Michael Alig. Both are incredibly awkward in the beginning- you can clearly see as it progresses, they…
I quite enjoyed this aesthetically, but overall I thought it a weird way to tell the story it's based on. The central performances, and the whole tone of the film, seemed way too flippant and light-hearted for the murder part to make any sense; especially considering that the murder happened in recent memory. In fact, not only was it too flippant about the murder, it actually ended up seeming like the film refused to condemn it and was implying it wasn't really a big deal at all. Would probably have worked better as a wholly fictional film about the 'club kid' scene without trying to introduce darker elements.
These favorites are films with GLBT content that I'd recommend. A few may not have overt queer themes, but I…
