Before there was Troma there was "The Battle!"
12 December 1998 | by (Detroit, MI) – See all my reviews

Lloyd Kaufman (the creator of "Toxie" and Troma) wrote, directed, produced, wrote the music, edited and stars in this film about a poor guy who is troubled by life and love in the big city. The film is very different from most in that it incorporates both fictional and (could be fictional) interview footage into the narative. I walked away with the feeling that the city (New York) is a cold place and so is the modern world! But that's just one man's opinion!
