LGBTQ movies are riddled with caricatures and disappointing representations, but some get it right and when they do, an angel…
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.
Lester from Beakman's World will always be my favorite man in a rat suit
This is the worst kind of campy movie. There's something really interesting going on, REALLY interesting characters all around, and you decided to ruin it by making a movie so full of your "schtick" that it's unrelatable to anything resembling life.
Some will argue that Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato’s Party Monster, a bio-pic concerning New York Club Kid and convicted murderer, Michael Alig, is a competent motion picture. They're entitled to their opinion. The film has gained quite a cult following in the past few years, namely because of the presence of former child actor, Macaulay Culkin, in his first serious film role - if that's what you want to call it.
Party Monster tells the story of Michael Alig, who moves to New York as a teen and plugs himself in to the party scene, following on the coattails of the flamboyant club queen, James St. James – played by a fantastic Seth Green. Before long, Alig begins hosting…
STILL ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAVES.
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.
