Bringing it up to-date
17 August 1999 | by (Los Angeles,Calif) – See all my reviews

I saw the film many years ago,and thought it was wonderful!I recently talked with someone who had been involved with the picture and as a result, my interest was rekindled.I rented it (not easy to do)and watched it twice. It's as fresh as it was twenty years ago, the performances are outstanding,and worth seeing.A simple story of skid row which seems totally real.
