"I am the mayor of New York City..."
26 December 2002 | by sonicboomboySee all my reviews

This movie is just a small image of what NYC was like during the 80's. I'm so glad it was made. Joey Arias is brilliant (still is and still performing). He and Ann Magnuson daringly performed their art during the early 80's at places like Danceteria where I was lucky enough to see them. I don't see it as a b-movie at all. It's a documentary and if you've lived in NYC (especially the lower east side) during the 80's you'd understand its value. Thank you Harvey Keith, for saving a bit of time on celuloid.
