Storyline

New York City. 1987. A new group of individuals arrives to fill the artistic power vacuum created by Andy Warhol's untimely death and the demise of his "Factory", in the form of The Club Kids. They would reign supreme over The City's nightlife through an era of decadence, debauchery and creative heights, which culminated with the death of one of them as well as the party itself. Their undisputed leader was Michael Alig, who came to New York with dreams of working in the fashion industry, only to find himself at the head of a nightlife movement which went far beyond anyone's expectations, reaching outrageous proportions. It ultimately imploded catastrophically with Michael going to prison for the murder and dismemberment of fellow Club Kid and drug dealer Angel Melendez. This coincided with the death of the NYC Super-Club era. Written by Ramon Fernandez

Always happy to be here...

Not necessarily a documentary that we need, but it is one that Michael Alig needed. The life, times and legacy of the Club Kids will forever be a fascination of those who participated, as well as those that didn't. It is... Alluring. It is... Exciting. And it is... Horrifying.

'Party Monster: The Shockumentary' is the better doc, but it's unfinished. And whatever it left on the table 'Glory Daze' picks up. Unfortunately, GD spends a little too much time revisiting the old days and not enough time with the follow up... Creating a final product that is far too long and extremely unpolished... But still, very much a must see.
