Though perhaps not as groundbreaking as the club it chronicles, Studio 54 is nevertheless an interesting, entertaining look at an indulgent era and the place that defined it.

Crucial to the documentary is the involvement of Ian Schrager, who until recently was reluctant to share his version of the club's history.

Studio 54 is not a great documentary by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a reasonably entertaining experience and, unlike most late nights at Studio 54, you probably won't hate yourself the morning after.

... the film is just as much a tribute to the club as the two men who created it.

The rise was meteoric, and the fall painful, with Schrager, who would go on to master the boutique hotel, discussing for the first time the mix of youthful ambition and greed that started to suggest a Martin Scorsese movie.

The movie tries hard to make the story of the club's rise and fall emblematic of an era, but in the end, it's about a couple of old friends from the neighborhood who got lucky, got greedy, and got caught.

The first hand accounts are really what made this documentary so special. Even though over 40 years have passed, people's faces light up with delight when they talk about Studio 54 .

For a venue that prided itself on madcap extravagance, the documentary feels somewhat tame as if deliberately targeted at the discotheque nightclubbers who are now respectful suburbanites.

For those who never were chic enough to get in the club's door, this might be the next best thing.
October 26, 2018
Through astute and revealing interviews with surviving owner Ian Schrager and archived interviews with co-owner Steve Rubell (who died in 1989), we get the story of the club like never before.

It's a fabulous get for Tyrnauer and for audiences that Schrager... finally felt ready to spill on what made Studio 54 so happening.

As this nostalgic, funky and ultimately bittersweet valentine of a movie shows, Studio 54 could never have survived no matter what - mainly because it was an ideal microcosm of how our society should be. And nobody at the time was ready for that.
