Party Monster (1998) Movie Review

Another E! True Hollywood Story of someone you've never heard of. Party Monster (like Boys Don't Cry vs. The Brandon Teena Story) was later fictionalized, with Macauley Culkin looking incredibly similar to the real-life club kid Michael Alig. Alig's story is a simple but tragic one: He was a club kid in the 1990s, hopped up on all manner of drugs but equally drugged by the celebrity of clubland -- androgeny, shock tactics, and much more nefarious things. Before long, one of his compatriots named Angel was found beheaded and limbless, locked into a suitcase and tossed into the sea. Alig was booked for the murder. He's deconstructed by his (former) friends and then interviewed from prison to discuss what may have happened. Clocking in at less than an hour, documentarians Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato quickly pack a lot of info into this grisly and grueling story.
