Director: Richard Kern
New York City 1985 - A churning world where the realities of poverty and sex among the desperate musicians, artists and scene markers dictates a mutated parody of normal lifestyles. Consumed with bitterness and hatred, the characters of Manhattan Love Suicides stalk their objects of attention through the depths of the Lower East Side. They are obsessive and selfish but sometimes they “fall in love” . The results are sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always violent. Shot in dazzling black and white with a soundtrack by J. H. Thirlwell, this film contains four vignettes featuring NYC cult stars Nick Zedd, Bill Rice, Tom Turner and Amy Turner.
