Doorman, The: Look at New York Club Scene

In “The Doorman,” a film crew has set out to make an insiders’ guide to the legendary New York City club scene with its most famous gatekeeper, Trevor W., starring as their host.

Trevor has the power. He knows people. But more importantly (as Trevor points out), he knows people who know him. After mysteriously losing his job, Trevor fails to inform the film crew following him. He struggles to keep up appearances in front of the camera while his glamorous, jet-set “celebrity” lifestyle goes into an abrupt and awkward tailspin.

Trevor W. may have held power over many important people, but whats a Doorman without a door.

Skewering the velvet rope circuit, this fictional documentary starring Lucas Akoskin features dozens of cameos by real-life boldface names including Peter Bogdanovich, Thom Filicia, and Amy Sacco.

“The Doorman” opens at City Cinemas Village East on July 18, 2008 in New York City.

The film is unrated with a running time of 76 minutes.
