Studio 54: The Director's Cut, A Triumph of Perseverance

Studio 54: The Director's Cut, A Triumph of Perseverance

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of attending a screening of “54: The Director’s Cut” at the Film Society Lincoln Center. We also had the privilege of attending the Q&A with director Mark Christopher, producer Ira Deutchman, editor Lee Percy, and production designer Kevin Thompson.

There has been much controversy over "54", the 1998 film about the sex, dancing, and drug filled club scene of legendary Studio 54. The story goes that director Mark Christopher and Miramax were at odds with the release of the original film. Miramax wanted a watered down version of the original story line. The budget was increased to meet their needs and there were many reshoots that went along with their version of the story. The other controversy was how the film was tested, in Long Island malls vs. in cities where audiences would be looking for edgier material.

Today, seventeen years later after much tedious work, "54: The Director’s Cut" includes 44 minutes of original material that has never been seen. What’s more important is that the film finally reflects the director’s intention. Christopher conceived the film as the story of Shane (Ryan Phillippe), a hot, young, New Jersey boy who discovers that his body is his ticket into the electric New York City club scene. He leverages his sex appeal to land a job at the club and to move his way into a short-lived stay among the social elite. Also wrapped into this story line is a triangle love story between Anita (Salma Hayek), Greg (Breckin Meyer), and Shane.

HOW TO MEASURE

Kinkster NYC Sizing Chart

The best way to determine size is to measure one of your favorite fitting shirts first and comparing to our approximated size charts.

WIDTH: The body width is measured by laying the shirt flat on it's back, keeping it free from wrinkles, and measuring from one arm pit to the other arm pit.

LENGTH: The body length is measured from neck seam to the bottom of the T-shirt.

APPROXIMATE CHEST: Measure under arms around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably loose.
