New York Dolls: All Dolled Up is a 2005 documentary that captures the legendary glam rock band at the height of their fame. By the early 1970s, the folk singers and acid rock groups had become old news in the underground clubs of New York City. The New York Dolls mixed the glamour of David Bowie and Mick Jagger with the raw sound of punk music. Filmmakers Bob and Nadya Gruen filmed the early performances of this influential band that would inspire groups like the Ramones, the Talking Heads and Blondie. The film shows the band performing at New York's East Village clubs like Max's Kansas City, as well as West Coast hot spots like the Whisky A Go Go. With songs like "Don't Start Me Talkin'" and "(There's Gonna Be A) Showdown," the group provided a raw rock sound with the dramatic stage presence of lead singer, David Johansen (later known as Buster Poindexter). This time capsule of a musical era also includes backstage interviews with the band members, as well as the debauchery after the show.
