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. Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green with Gloe Sevigny, Natasha Lyonne, Marilyn Manson and Dylan McDermott in this tale of drugs, excess and murder. It's the wildest true story ever told!
Nominated: Grand Jury Prize - Dramatic, 2003 Sundance Film Festival
It's Green who, despite his straight-man role steals the show, with a performance of controlled engagement with both the delights and damage of the kids' lifestyle. -- Ben Walters, SIGHT AND SOUND
