new york doll

Before I post anything else, I have to say this:

I just saw the most amazing movie this weekend. It's called New York Doll, and it blew me away.

The film is a documentary that centers around Arthur "Killer" Kane, a founding member of the influential band the New York Dolls, but this is not a movie about a glam-rock band. The band broke up a few short years after its inception, and Kane struggled to find his niche in life, eventually joining the LDS church, but this is not a film about religion. This is a film about the beauty and humanity of one man.

If you have the chance, see this film! I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Right now it's only available in the NYC, LA, SLC, and Phoenix areas, though it is expanding to other areas soon. If you live in AZ, it's showing at Harkins Centerpoint in Tempe. Go see this movie. And then tell me what you think.

I echo my wife's sentiments completely - GO SEE THIS MOVIE. We both ended up getting a bit teary. I might expound on my blog later, as well...r

I am so excited to see this. I'm excited to see the 'reunion' of the Dolls. And the life of Arthur Kane. And Morrissey! The previews and all the press I've read has been really good, which Yay!
