Storyline

A year after becoming the toast of New York City's art scene, photographer Max Martin has lost his ability to take a decent picture. On the night before his make-or-break gallery opening, surrounded by the trappings of success but devoid of inspiration, Max embarks on a bizarre trek through the city in search of ten mysterious photographs that could save his career. Shot in brilliant color and dramatic black and white, first-time director Jeremy Stein's industrial New York City is a wonderland, roamed by witches and magical creatures, where survival hinges on the completion of a simple quest. Accompanied by an unlikely crew of strangers he meets along the way, Max trips through a modern-day Oz and rediscovers the easily forgotten value of seeing magic reflected in everyday life.

Quotes

Mira: Well,
[Starts imitating a newscaster.]
Mira: just hours ago, this young man beside me was in the possession of ten-- that's right, ten-- eight-by-ten glossy photographs and now he's lost them, frittered them away. Max here fears a life, a lonely life filled with despair, wandering around on the streets of New York a nothing, a plankton, a bottom dweller, a toothache, a tiny speck of dust that... everything.

Can't wait to see it again
21 January 2002 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

I hope this movie is coming out in the theater because I want to see it again. It is worth it for the scene in the bar alone. The characters and setting are so real, which is weird because the story is kind of a fantasy. I really felt like I knew them. If I had to describe this movie I would say that it is "The Wizard of Oz" plus "After Hours". Does this team have any more movies coming out?
