Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance this year, New York Doll is the captivating story of the rise, fall and resurrection of this seminal band. But as the title suggests, it is really a portrait of one man, bassist Arthur 'Killer' Kane. Once the Dolls imploded, Kane descended further into drug-induced crisis (as well as from a second-storey window) before being saved by a hand-delivered mail-order book: The Book of Mormon. Documentarian and fellow Mormon Greg Whiteley picks up Kane's story in 2004, by which time he is working in a genealogy library at his local Mormon Temple. But while God is a saviour of one kind for Kane, so is Brit singer and Renaissance man Morrissey, who was behind the Dolls' reunion for London's Meltdown Festival.
