|01.30.14||Netflix|| The story of the legendary NYC club and all the bands that came out of it. For whatever reason I get a sizable kick out of seeing actors play these bands in their infancy. I guess because 24 Hour Party People was so good? For whatever reason, I liked seeing The Ramones and Talking Heads and Dead Boys and Blondie (Malin Ackerman in Debbie Harry's wardrobe... just sayin)... that part was fun.|
But unfortunately the movie is also host to a ton of bad accents and had trouble staying compelling for me. Why is Alan Rickman acting in slow motion? Was that the way Hilly acted? I suspect he just can't speak quickly with his American accent. And where is Donal Logue supposed to be from? Just a bunch of weird stuff like that; it really brought the movie down for me. But you know... what IS the story really? I guess all I should ask for is seeing the bands and listening to the music (which was great)... And again this feeds into my late-70s NYC sleaze fetish a little bit. Must have been an exciting time, as long as you weren't stabbed to death.
