Party Monster

Those expecting a realistic examination of the rise and fall of New York party king Michael Alig are guaranteed to be disappointed. This campy, freewheeling biopic does a fine job, however, of mirroring the naive, anything goes atmosphere of the late-'80s New York club scene. Macaulay Culkin turns in an interesting, over-the-top performance as the alternately innocent and manipulative Alig who ended up in jail on a drug-fueled murder charge. Co-star Seth Green all but steals the show, though, as Alig's flamboyant mentor-turned-sycophant. 98 minutes
