  • Feels fake, forced and indigestible. show more

  • The distance between tawdry and tedious can be amazingly short. It is traveled with Concorde speed in the arch Party Monster. show more

  • Culkin plays Alig as clueless to the end, living so firmly in his fantasy world that nothing can penetrate his chirpy persona. Whether this is accurate--whether indeed any of the facts in the film are accurate--is not for me to say, but it works. show more
