Wow! Just wow. What a great movie, why haven’t I heard of this before?
It’s really a touching film that will reach even the most cynical and jaded of viewers. “Coming of age” movies can be pretty overly sentimental but this is a solid look at the author/screenwriter’s less than stellar life as a young man in the hard core streets of NYC in the low years of the early 80’s.
And what a cast! Everyone puts in a exemplary performance, cinematography is gritty and real. I don’t want to rave too long. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a movie that leaves you feeling like you e had an experience. This one was a real treat. Give yourself a little time to soak it on after the credits roll. You’ll need it.
What did you think? Who should watch it?
