Storyline

June was once a known counter-culture figure, but that was a decade ago. She now lives alone in her South Bronx apartment, having all but cut herself off from the outside world. It's the notorious "Summer of Sam" and June only has to look out of her window to see the violence escalating with the brutal summer heat. The city is on a knife's edge, a pressure-cooker about to explode into the incendiary 1977 New York blackout riots. Written by Anonymous

Could've been great, but...
22 January 2021 | by Go_For_The_JugularSee all my reviews

This film has so much potential...it looks great...it sounds great...but it just goes nowhere. Every few minutes we're introduced to new and interesting characters, all with their own story to tell...but they all fizzle away to nothing.

This was like watching the first part of a 3-part movie...I WANT CLOSURE!
