R | | Drama
The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
The four main characters, Sara and Harry Goldfarb, Marion Silver, and Tyrone Love, are significantly named as they turn to drugs in order to gain a better life: Sara wants to be glamorous (gold), Marion and Harry want their own business (gold/silver), and Tyrone wants a better home than what his mother provided for him (love).
I told you I would make it, Mama.
Tyrone's Mother: Oh, you don't have to make anything, my sweet, you just have to love your mother.
(at around 1h 1 min) When Marion leaves Arnold's apartment and runs onto the street to vomit it is raining heavily, however when she arrives back home her hair and clothes are completely dry.
The closing credits feature pictures of Coney Island Amusement Park, and during the credits, the sounds of the shore can be heard.
The edited version replaces the shot of Marion and another woman having sex with two men with a shot of Marion partially clothed climbing on top of a man. Also, all the shots of the double-ended dildo and the shots of Marion and the woman having sex on it have been replaced with alternate camera angles and shots that hide any indication that the two are having anal sex on it. Some shots were also re-used to hide the close-ups of the two butts slamming together.
