Yup, I got into Studio 54 as an underage teenager just before Schrager and Rubell got busted. The direction and cinematography make this film a classic --- as close to being there as being chosen by doorman Mark Benecke out of a crowd a thousand deep. $15 cover charge in 1979! And you'd walk through the hall of mirrors like Ryan Phillippe, pass the coat check, and come upon that row of black doors, a gateway to the most fantastic party in your wildest dreams. I finally figured out one reason for the club's success -- with the undeclared cash income, the owners threw the most extravagant parties of all time, night after night. This film gives an inkling, an idea of the place, for history, though the real Studio 54 was neither as freakish or out of control as the film depicts. When you entered the place, you felt like you'd gone to heaven. After a while, it felt like home.

Sex, drugs, and disco. All the camp, but also the pathos of the era, especially as we look back at what we now know what was to follow.

The original release of 54 was a strange fish: part salmon swimming hopelessly upstream, part peacock. And just as a fish and a bird might fall in love, it had no where to live. The film titillated, but it failed to commit. The story seemed to drift off, earning razzies for all involved, despite some good, even some excellent performances. Now we know it was ruthlessly cut up by film editors trying to make it acceptable to the mall theater crowd.

Here it is in all of it's original glory. A unfiltered lens on a time and a place with the famous and hangers on who created it.

Remember Studio 54? And doesn't it seem a long time ago?

This was a dance club like no other in the late 1970s. The patrons were either celebrities or those chosen at the front door because they had the "look" of the beautiful people. Inside was a fantasy of dancing and drugs, all lit by strobe lighting. And, as it had formerly been a theater, there was a even balcony for those almost private moments of brief romantic encounters. The waiters and bartenders were all gorgeous young men and wore nothing but shorts and a bow tie. This is a story of one of these guys.

Ryan Phillips is cast in the role of Shane O'Shea, a 19 year old from New Jersey who yearns for a star-studded life. He's chosen at the door and is big eyed with wonder and desire. Eventually, he becomes a waiter and later is promoted to bartender. There are a lot of women. And there is a lot of money. He even gets his picture in a magazine. Everything comes easy for him but he really is interested in a New Jersey girl who's a rising soap opera star.

The best role in the film goes to Mike Myers, who plays the legendary Steve Rubell who made it all happen. He's a strange bird with an eccentric personality and he does a lot of drugs. The money rolls in and he is in trouble with the IRS. But he's so puffed up with his own importance that he even brags about it on TV. Eventually, he's arrested and the party ends. But before it does, the filmgoers are treated to a small view of what it was back then.

I found the story silly, but I loved the nostalgia. Here was the music and the lights and the feeling of decadence that characterized a time that no longer exists. I lived through that time period. I remember. And so for those who are curious and those who want to step into the past for an hour and a half, I recommended this 1998 film.

After having seen the commercially released version years ago, and being a Disco Music fanatic, I was pretty excited to hear this version was finally available. The legend about this director's cut is that this was how the movie had been intended to be released until preview audiences rejected it for being too edgy. That was 1998, and now I guess Sony Pictures decided people are more ready to see it this way. I was a bit surprised at how much different this movie is from the official 1998 release. With this director's cut almost half of the minutes have been replaced, and you should not see it with anyone who is upset with nudity or out-there displays of sexual activity or drug abuse.
The music is splendid and the visual spectacle of the goings-on is easily worth the price of admission. It is easy to see why Studio 54 became an instant legend, if the reality really was as awesome as the film shows it to have been.
The plot is more engaging in this "new" version. It develops the relationships better between the three coworkers who live together and also makes that relationship more complicated and far less wholesome. The story line examines the question of how far will you go to be a success in a world built on questionable and shifting ethics, and how do you define what matters in a world where all the rules you ever knew seem to vanish once you pass the velvet rope.
I think the 1998 release "tied things up" at the end better than the director's cut. But otherwise I prefer the director's cut for the way the story reaches so much farther into the moral and ethical problems of the characters and relationships.

I waited years to see this version and I was pleased. This is now a completely new experience with all the original scenes put back in. Some video is grainy but it works well, feels like old documentary footage mixed in with the story. I love this version and the totally different ending.
