Casting Macaulay Culkin as real-life Manhattan club kid turned killer Michael Alig turns out to be more stunt than inspiration. The Home Alone star, 23, goes through the motions (the drag, the drugs, the bisexuality) but misses the emotions that might explain how a bullied brat went from scenester to a slayer able to shove Drano down the throat of a dealer. Seth Green is far better as James St. James, the writer who introduced Michael to the 1990s clubs. Directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato handled the tale more cogently in their 1999 documentary. This film feels fake, forced and indigestible.
