Directed by Amos Poe | 1984

With Vincent Spano, Michael Winslow, Kate Vernon

"The first teenage gangster movie."
—Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times

19-year-old Johnny (Spano) is an East Village drug kingpin with the white Pontiac Firebird to prove it. But when he decides to go straight, he finds that the mob that made him isn’t going to let him off that easily. Punk filmmaker Amos Poe crafts a luridly expressionistic gangster saga set amidst the neon-splashed mean streets of the Lower East Side. The echt-80s, synthpop soundtrack is by Chic’s Nile Rodgers.
