Editorial Reviews

This is the award winning 20 minute SHORT Film. The place is the notorious Starck Club (so called because it was the first major project designed by Philippe Starck, it put him on the map in the US.) The Starck Club opened in Dallas in 1984 and not long after hosted the 1984 national Republican Convention. Ironically, it was actually legal to buy MDMA aka ecstasy there, people would put it on their credit cards. The DEA stepped in and made it a category 1 drug on July 1, 1985...

But, this is too obvious, aside from being ground zero for the popularization of the designer drug, the club was so much more. Philippe Starck is now a world renowned designer, but until his foray in Dallas he was only an up and coming Parisien designer virtually unknown outside of France. In addition, the mid '80's brought about a new second British invasion and the birth of new wave music: Dead or Alive, Book of Love, Depeche Mode, Grace Jones, Edie Brickell, Red Hot Chili peppers and a whole slew of new bands and artists performed there. Dallas in the 80's was fast becoming a world class city primarily due to an economic growth spurt and attracting people from all over the globe. This film explores the legacy and influence the club's impact has had on designers, DJ's, fashion, sex, and the seeds for the whole rave/techno scene. Simply put the Starck's allure was the Building, the Music, The Drug! Think the roaring '20's only transposed to the mid '80's complete with financial crisis. In this case, the Savings & Loan crisis that hammered the entire Southwestern US and spelled the end of the club's existence.

I was only 17, 18 or so when the Starck Club was in full swing. It was a mythical place for a girl from Bedford, Texas. How in the world did I go about getting on the guest list, I often wondered. I lived at Confetti's on Greenville and Lovers but somehow getting into the Starck was a challenge...and if I ever did, would it be as grand as I had heard? Well, it was...I will never forget it. Great documentary...wish it was longer with more pictures, nevertheless very well done. Can't believe that was 25+ years ago. Now I am a mom and would I let my daughter go to a place like that?...HELL NO...but I will secretly grin when she tries. Of course they don't make 'em like that anymore so hopefully I won't have to worry about it.
