01.30.14Netflix 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.
