Storyline

A young woman wanders around New York City and stumbles across a number of strange characters and settings that represent the "underground" areas of the city. She sees stand up comedy in Central Park, a prostitution auction, a voodoo ceremony, an S&M club, and a number of very interesting performance artists. These are just a few of the sights and sounds of New York that she encounters. Written by Josh Pasnak <chainsaw@intouch.bc.ca>

This is art buddy!
26 December 2004 | by roberthultsSee all my reviews

Time and time again people criticize what they do not understand. People have fear of death or taboo of sex yet they really do enjoy watching TV. So when a real life documentary of the New York City sub-culture comes out, it is just too weird.

This film covers a lot of New Yorks underground scene. Poetry, performance art, illegal transactions and some really good comedians (one at least made it after this film).

If you are a fan of avant-guard or even a little twisted, check this one out. I first saw this 1n Portland, Oregon in 1988 and watched it once every five years after that. Each time, I really enjoyed it, but then again I am a bit twisted.
