        Warriors of the Discotheque: The Starck Club Documentary The place is the notorious Starck Club (so called because it was the first major project designed by Philippe Starck in North America, it put him on the map in the US.) The Starck Club opened in Dallas in 1984 and not long after hosted the 1984 national Republican Convention. Ironically, it was actually legal to buy MDMA aka ecstasy there, people would put it on their credit cards. The DEA stepped in and made it a category 1 drug on July 1, 1985... But, this is too obvious, aside from being ground zero for the popularization of the designer drug, the club was so much more. Philippe Starck is now a world renowned designer, but until his foray in Dallas he was only an up and coming Parisien designer virtually unknown outside of France. In addition, the mid '80's brought about a new second British invasion and the birth of new wave music: Dead or Alive, Book of Love, Depeche Mode, Grace Jones, Edie Brickell, Red Hot Chili peppers and a whole slew of new bands and artists performed there. Dallas in the 80's was fast becoming a world class city primarily due to an economic growth spurt and attracting people from all over the globe. This film explores the legacy and influence the club's impact has had on designers, DJ's, fashion, sex, and the seeds for the whole rave/techno scene. Simply put the Starck's allure was the Building, the Music, The Drug! Think the roaring '20's only transposed to the mid '80's complete with financial crisis. In this case, the Savings & Loan crisis that hammered the entire Southwestern US and spelled the end of the club's existence.
