New York Doll

“New York Doll” A must see to believe

What appears to be a simple documentary of a gangly, rather average bass player in the influential glam-rock band the New York Dolls and his transformation from “has been” to converted Mormon, turns out to be an inspired film that defies description. Director Greg Whiteley captures Arthur “Killer” Kane reuniting with his surviving bandmates after 30 years to be part of singer Morissey’s popular music festival. Touching and funny, and with an unforgettable ending that could not have been better if it were fiction. One of the best films of the year.
