I didn’t know that Monster
was already out on DVD, but with all the recent Oscar hoopla,
I was quick to snatch it up. I looked everywhere for Christina
Ricci (rrrwowrrr), but I didn’t see her, so I figured
she was crushed under a headdress or wandering around in an
animal costume somewhere. I loved the costuming, but then, I’ve
always been an unapologetic Rocky Horror fan.
It was such a trip down memory lane to see all these beautiful
faygelas I’ve watched on TV over the years. Oz from Buffy
(Seth Green) steals the show. He’s much prettier than
Culkin. Fez from That Seventies Show (Wilmer Valderrama)
is always absolutely fabulous. And remember Rickie from way
back when on My So Called Life (Wilson Cruz)?
I have to give the casting director kudos in spite of his/her
desperate cry for attention in casting Marilyn Manson. (To be
honest, he’s not half bad.) Of course, it is a stroke
of genius to cast Mac Culkin as Michael Alig. He’s pretty
good at playing a spaced-out, emotionally ruined young man.
Wait, this isn’t Monster. It’s Party
