Simon is a street retailer, his shop a corner on the lower east side in New York, his stock bootleg cassette tapes,the ambience a boombox. He scrounges food from restaurants, exists on vodka and beans, sleeps on the floor, and cares for an unloved cat. Marty, who may be an old girlfriend, visits. Down and out New York, unlovely and violent. Written by

The highlight of this movie was in the directing. Because it was shot in black and white, it brought a depth to a movie that had little to go on script-wise. What made this movie an 8 in my opinion was the use of music, the use of the black and white, and the girl in the movie, who I found more compelling than the main character. There isn't much to give away, as the story itself holds no baring to the beauty of the movie. Its the silence that tells the story in this flick :)
Sit down in a dark room, and enjoy.
