Drugs guide the movie's visual elements via trippy, rave-worthy animations. Melting rooms and visual distortions place the interviewees in an E-tastic experience. The film humorously and tastefully captures that era.

Corben will return home for his next project: taking a crack at Liquid nightclub's Chris Paciello, perhaps the Gatien of South Beach. The filmmaker believes that Paciello's story demonstrates the "rise and fall of the renaissance of South Beach — an era that ended with the opening of a T.G.I.Friday's on Fifth Street."

To a certain extent, Limelight explores that sentiment, what Corben calls "the mall-ification of America." The film shows that though Giuliani made New York more livable, culture suffered as a result.
