It is a fun story that is not told that well. It is still a fun story, though.

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.

It's frustratingly broad on its place in club culture.

It feels a bit too tame.

This all makes for a shallow but vivid history.
October 4, 2018
The feeling persists that we are very far from hearing what really happened there.
October 18, 2018
While it provides a succinct and straightforward history lesson ... Studio 54 never quite moves past the glitz and the glamour.

Tyrnauer tries to find the heart of whatever Studio 54 was all about, but never actually gets there - instead, we're left to goggle at the footage and still photos of near-naked dancers and gossip-column habitues.

Schrager's memories of his friendship with Rubell, and the lost community they nourished, lends the film unexpected heart.

I found it really interesting and good.

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.

The documentary revives the energy of the mythic New York nightclub. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 21, 2018
... the film is just as much a tribute to the club as the two men who created it.

A fresh visiting to Studio 54. A must to that decade. A historic piece of art. [Full review in Spanish]

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 .

Schrager tells the behind the scenes story for the first time, how Studio 54 came to a sudden stop. And it's a doozy. Tyrnauer's revelations from people who were part of the scene are nothing short of astonishing.
October 17, 2018
Infamous by name, New York's Studio 54, served as a glitzy yet, dingy playground for the rich & famous. Director Matt Tyrnauer's documentary sheds a bright neon light.

It's a cultural piece of history that paints a picture of an era of New York that had a significant effect on the world. And it goes without saying, changed the nightclub industry forever.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

Tyrnauer is a consummate storyteller, and we get a meticulous account of both the macro and micro view of what happened.
