Slaves of New York
Seenmorethanonce Screening room Tv laptop
Twitter Capsule:
The interminable, directionless, non-adventures of hip, struggling artists living in downtown NYC during the '80s. Not even the wonderful Bernadette Peters can make us care about the shallow banalities of these individuals; their meaningless careers, dysfunctional love lives, and silly outfits. 
The most ill-conceived Merchant Ivory production ever. Watch the infinitely superior Desperately Seeking Susan three times immediately after seeing this to remove any trace of Tama Janowitz’s characters from your mind.
