    Glory Daze: The Life and Times of Michael Alig 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Dec, 2016

    For me, an enjoyable birds eye view of one of the weirdest phases of the NYC nightlife. I would love to see tons more docs on the Strange Club Kid scene that existed during that brief window.

    Movie was a little light on Michael Alig given that he was literally a drug-induced murderer but I suppose that's the point of serving a prison sentence: penance.

    I love a drag queen but this was abysmal. There are approximately 3 laughable moments and I do not think they were intentional.

    The acting and script are quite bad but also note the insane camera angles throughout. MTV style constantly. Why!?!

    I can't help but think this role would be better served by someone 5 years older and 2 feet taller BUT Radcliffe does a nice job of filling the role. His outbursts whenever he felt about to get caught always felt like a flash of brilliance.

    On the whole, a fairly disturbing film if you think about it in the context that these people actually exist and that our current US political climate is probably fanning their flames.

    If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.

    Must see for anyone. Period.
