Storyline

Bobby G. lives life on the edge in this real, raw New York street drama. Bobby is a small-time coke dealer, always on the hustle but rarely successful. He lives in Hell's Kitchen with his Puerto Rican girlfriend Lucy, who makes ends meet as a prostitute. A typical day finds Bobby selling $20 bags to neighborhood locals and passing cars.

I liked it
29 December 2000 | by reptyleSee all my reviews

Yeah, I liked it. Watched this film with its producer Holland, and enjoyed it greatly. He told me some interesting things about it, like that they couldn't afford a real police-car (low budget) and had to skip a planned scene with this ambulance at the end of the film. But now there's some sort of remaking available with titled Drugdealer, like trying to be more snappy. Basically same cast, haven't seen it yet.
