Part of BAMcinématek 2014 series Overdue
Directed by Matthew Harrison | 1995

With Jason Andrews, Eddie Daniels, Kevin Corrigan

"In its best moments this crude black-and-white film has the edgy, loose-jointed spontaneity of a hip-hop, avant-funk "Breathless," but one with a grimier neo-realist view of urban life."
—The New York Times

A 1990s Lower East Side snapshot in hypnotic high-contrast black-and-white, Matthew Harrison’s restless film captures the nerve-addling assault of hard-knock city living for a tape bootlegger. Barely scraping by, hardheaded Simon (Jason Andrews) illegally records concerts in clubs and wrangles his pesky friend (Kevin Corrigan), ultimately incurring the wrath of a group he’s ripped off (led by Bush Tetras singer Cynthia Sley).
