    Limelight focuses far too much on the club's downfall and not nearly enough on what attracted its denizens there in the first place, managing only to preach to the choir, forgetting to also take it to church. show more

    Depending on your age, Limelight could make you nostalgic for those bad old days - and sort of glad you'll never be able to relive them. show more
