« Some Math for the Seattle School District | Main | Harsh Reality in the Obama Era, #4 »



Starring Ryan Phillippe and Salma Hayek with Mike Myers and Neve Campbell


'54' captures the epitomy of post rebellion baby boomer generation excesses - and business practices, a story unique to its time. Historians will certainly have a heyday analyzing the brief popularity of disco at its particular point in time, and this movie provides clues to what was really going on.

The movie chronicles the experience of a young, lower middle class, 'jerysey boy' who climbs to the heights of Manhattan's social world in a haze of sex and cocaine, by working at the club.

I'm not a fan of Mike Myers typical products, but here he is superb as the club owner, Steve Rabbell.

FWIW, let's hope the Obama generation never generates such tales....

This isn't a clip from the movie, but a slide show from the actual club, set to a medly of disco music. I wonder if Bernie Madoff is in one of these pictures....?
