last night i watched this promo copy of 'new york doll' and i was really impressed by how good it was . i was randomly given it by my boss at universal. i didnt think much of it, but i was bored so i watched it...anyway, its worth watching. it hasnt been released yet, i know that. it shows how arthur kane changed his crazy life to a life of religion by following the mormon faith. has anyone heard about this?

A ROCK STAR FINDS HOPE IN THE
MORMON CHURCH
You'll never forget the inspiring true story of Arthur "Killer" Kane, former bassist of the revolutionary rock band the New York Dolls. This Official Sundance Selection explores Arthur's improbable transformation from jaded rock star to humble LDS service missionary. When the opportunity arises for Arthur to relive his glory days in a star-studded reunion concert, his elderly friends in the genealogy department become his new groupies.

As Arthur seeks to reclaim the good things from his past while leaving the bad behind, you'll see stirring evidence that a loving God hears and answers our sincere prayers. Share with your family and neighbors the uplifting journey of a world-weary musician who receives a second chance. Rated PG-13


PRAISE FOR "NEW YORK DOLL"
"A soft-spoken, damaged soul who has found refuge and hope in the Mormon Church."
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"A respectful and subtle look at the difference faith can make in one's life."
- Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News

New York Doll really doesn't feel like it was made as a commercial for Mormonism - although it could certainly serve as one."
- Kurt Loder, MTV


"As journeys go, this is one to treasure." - Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

"A charmer." - Dennis Harvey, Variety

"A revelation." - Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel


"[`New York Doll'] turns Arthur Kane's largely heartbreaking rock and roll life into a small, unassuming monument to the power of friendship and the wonders of the spirit."
- Kurt Loder, MTV

"One of those stories so incredible that even the most creative Hollywood screenwriters couldn't have come up with it." - Jeff Vice, Deseret News

This was playing at the alternative cinema across from (formerly)Fred Meyers about 2 months ago. I didn't see it, but it was there for quite a while.

I know someone who has a poster for it, too, but I'm not sure where he got it.
He's got a poster for Wolverine, too!!! I definitely want to know where that one came from since I'm not even sure if it's coming out this year!

It was very strange to see references to the New York Dolls on KSL between sessions of Conference.

Verrrry Surreal

Kind of like the time I tried to talk Morrissey's Road Crew into going to church with me. They almost said yes! haha, but they had to leave for LA. boo

Life takes very odd turns sometimes

Did you see the recording of the Dolls lead singer singing A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief?
