No actual plot but something to say
The storyline of this film is not really easy to follow and understand as usual with Ferrara. Actually, he has something very sad to communicate: the end of movies and movie theaters he thinks will be replaced by video. (Internet should help the video killing the movie.) Ferrara does not see it as a bad thing (as I understood) but points it out as a natural evolution of the 'moving pictures' arts. Denis Hopper finally has a great role.
