01.07.06Netflix filling in the blanks here... not too many more times i get to watch a scorsese movie for the first time... to me, this movie is another testament to how crazy NYC was in the 80s. like SoHo is a graffiti'd wasteland populated by punks and bohemian artist types and if you go down there you may die or end up trapped in a plaster of paris sculpture all night. this movie feels a little bit like Jarmusch on coke... NYC in the 80s though... between coked up weirdness like this, hip hop starting in the uber-ghettos like Wild Style, and the weird art scene going on like those Julian Schnabel movies... it really seemed like a crazy scene.

Will Patton was great too.

also, for anyone that reads this site by actually visiting instead of via RSS, i added a few tidbits here and there: the details page has an imdb link and also has the release date... that way, after I get through going back and updating all my old entries, I'll be able to quickly see how many movies from the 70s, 80s, etc. I've seen. I also added event flags so if you want to read my entire BNAT or fantasticfest write-up, it displays all the movies I saw during that event in the right order so you don't have to search around for the right date then read them backward. Yes, i geek out of maintaining this site too much, but oh well. deal.
