Perfectly Excellent
28 June 2006 | by haildevilmanSee all my reviews

Brilliant documentary about the performance art scene in NYC.

Joe Coleman's geek show might put a lot of people off though.

The best part of this was seeing Charlie Barnett (D.C. Cab) and Rick Avilies (Ghost, Carlito's Way) do their great stand up in the park.

Both men had me rolling on the floor.

We follow a college age woman as she walks through the lower east side visiting performances and museums.

We see a voodoo ritual as well.

This should be kept in circulation for having the best footage of the late John Sex.

If you like weirdness, and aren't hypersensitive, check this one out.
