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.
