New York Doll

Proto-punk, gender-benders the New York Dolls pioneered the aural chaos that would soon become the punk rock movement. 30 years on, Smiths' singer Morrissey envisions a reunion and tracks down bass player Arthur 'Killer' Kane, whose post-band career fell into a slump of alcoholism and depression until 1989 when he found the Mormon faith. Greg Whiteley's fascinating documentary tracks Kane's ups and downs from rock star to rock bottom and back again with the help of the other Dolls, Chrissie Hynde, Iggy Pop, Bob Geldof and more.
