The Party’s Over
Phil Hoffman does the narration and also the interviewing. He is admittedly clueless and looks like a retarded child with down syndrome gawking up at everyone. He is in awe of everything. In the first five minutes, they criticize MTV for the style and fashion and of course, the movie, co-directed by Donovan Leitch (yes, the guy you’re thinking of), is exactly like an MTV doc, speedcutting, lots of music, and endless sound bites. I’m not sure whether this is better than Cutting Class. In a wonderfully ironic Behind the Music moment, Scott Weiland is interviewed (in 2000, when this movie was made), talking about how drugs are out of his life forever, and how cleaning up has changed everything.
