54: The Director's Cut...
Well, it's true what they say: you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear...no matter how hard you try.
The original review stands...even with the additional - more gay - footage, this remains a damp squib...
The original review...
What went wrong? A case of conceit multiplied by infinity.
The film, albeit watchable, totally misses the essence of the time, failing to capture the period entirely.
This should have been a camp extravaganza instead of a depressed turkey.
The music is quiet, the party suppressed - a competent film told from the wrong perspective.
Mark Christopher's short films are far more interesting than this limp affair.
As impressive as a damp firework.
An anthology film retelling the story of the famous Studio 54, a hot disco hangout for the social elite of New York. The movie follows several characters at once, some of whom are in desperate straits and on the verge of crashing.
