Martin Scorsese not only puts on large-scale artistic films, but also periodically turns to the documentary genre. As a rule, to tell the audience about the musicians who inspire him and their work.
His new film in this category, Personality Crisis: One Night Only, is about New York Dolls frontman David Johansen. In the published video, you can see archival footage with the participation of the band that became famous in the 70s, which launched Kiss, Sex Pistols, Ramones, Guns N' Roses, Damned, Smiths and others into the music arena.
"I've known David Johansen for decades and his music has been a cornerstone for me ever since I listened to the Dolls on Mean Streets (1973)," the director said in a press statement. “Then and now, David's music expresses the energy and nerve of New York. I often go to his concerts and over the years I have learned where he draws inspiration from. After seeing his show at Carlile I knew I had to make a film because it was amazing to see the evolution of his life and his musical talent in such an intimate setting."
Personality Crisis: One Night Only will hit theaters on April 14th on Showtime and later on digital platforms.
