What happens to a glam-rock star after the fishnets and sequins are tossed away? New York Doll is the tragic, touching story of New York Dolls bassist Arthur ”Killer” Kane, who found a second calling as a Mormon librarian after the Dolls dissipated. Following Kane from his dingy L.A. home to a 2004 reunion of the proto-punkers in London, the documentary has a perfect narrative arc and a shocking ending that will get you in the gut.

COOL CURIO A 20-minute sit-down with an earnest and warm Morrissey, who orchestrated their reunion.
