Ultra-Low-Budget but done with a panache that is still somewhat beautiful today with its garish nightlife colors and an Artistic Flare that is rarely achieved in this type of Quickie. This is a Sleeper and is a fine example of what you can do with limited resources.
This has more appeal than a lot of Mainstream Movies with huge amounts of Money and very little Talent. The street scenes have a glamorous gritty look and remind one of a Comic Book or something out of the imagination.
This is an underrated, underground Film treat and could be defined as a Cult Movie that has yet to be acknowledged for what it is. A great looking, surreal, well-done take on a time of opulence and decadence, shown here as a picture postcard from a Twilight Zone. Nothing here is presented or meant to be realistic. It is a swath of decay presented as a twinkling other place that is as accessible as it is disturbing.
Kudos to all involved, especially the Cinematographer and the Art Designer. But it took a group effort to pull this one off and make it so much better, Artistically, because it hardly stood a chance and rose above its restraints and Money-Men meddling.
