The story follows a young gangster of Italian descent named Johnny,
who has been given control over his own neighborhood by the Mob.
The film is set in Alphabet City, a part of the East Village in New York City. (Wikipedia)

I loved this very stylish street flick directed by Amos Poe (he directed the music video for Animotion´s Obsession)

And yes, this movie is like a 85 minute music video with cool scenes and fantastic music.
Starring Vincent Spano, Michael Winslow, Kate Vernon and Jami Gertz.

Spano is ultracool and i loved the Pontiac Trans Am he drove.
Winslow is a funny drug dealer with his trademark sound effects.
Vernon and Gertz look great but Gertz should´ve had a bigger role.

Nile Rodgers (Chic, Sister Sledge, Madonna) composed the awesome soundtrack.
I really need the soundtrack album, check out The Lady Luck scene and you´ll know why.

Alphabet City (1984) Trailer

The dvd is still available and it´s very cheap!
Highly recommended!

BTW, check out the IMDb page because Amos Poe has posted some interesting comments.

Ooh, I just watched and loved this [Cool] It sure did feel like one long music video. Having overdosed on Rumble Fish the last couple of years it was most amusing to see 'Steve' like this haha [Big Grin]

Thanks for the recommendation. Glad I got it [Smile]
