New York Doll Review

The New York Dolls represent a curiosity in the history of rock music, a band that influenced many but never made a huge mark on its own. This small documentary tracks the rise and fall of the Dolls, focusing on Arthur "Killer" Kane, who became a Mormon after bottoming out of his drug addiction. Eventually the Dolls reunite to play a rough show, though "staging a comeback" is an awfully nice way to put it. If you're a fan of the group (or of enigmatic leader David Johansen, whose face now appears to be melting off his head), you'll enjoy the film. Others may not care enough to see it through.
