Another Great Nihilist NY-lensed Sex Roughie!, 29 March 2000
Author: Son of Cathode from New England

A sicko in a suit kills bad chicks, then has sex with them. A typically depressing b/w NY "roughie" has lots of no-sound segments with bad jazz, cool city locations, lots of long street-walkin' scenes with hookers and (police) dicks, along with unusually well-drawn characters for a skid-row quickie, sleazy hostile johns, psychotic bartenders and hookers with heart. This flick is full of cool, tangential scenes, like a hooker-lesbian's long-winded exposition, and a great scene where man and wife both flirt with cheating (the man falls, the wife don't). In the end, the deceased hookers' pals gang up on the killer ala "I Spit on Your Grave" and give him his own medicine, and the Freudian symbology comes full circle: the killer, who was driven to crime by an abusive slut-mother, finds surrogate mothers to abuse, and who eventually kill the little boy in him, which is what he always wanted. All in all a cool flick about a subterranean world of Damon Runyonesque losers like one might stumble upon at the Oyster Bar at Grand Central. An ironic Times Square sign mocks the raincoat-hugging audience: "Get more out of life; Go to a Movie!"
