“In this gonzo tone poem, Bowery Billy Leroy has 72 hours to save his star-crossed, Lower East Side junk store from its bitter end. Facing extinction, his ramshackle tent of antiquities lures a troop of misfits, freaks and renegades who form a tableaux full of carnival pageantry, white lies and victimless crime in a fleeting glimpse of Downtown New York.” – Blowback Productions
“A vibrant, visceral portrait of the streets of New York at their most sublime.” – W
“It’s much more street than Mean Streets, and makes Taxi Driver seem like it was shot in Ohio.”
– Black Book
“A Low-Budget Ode to No-Budget NY. Levin’s lyrical camera work limns a beguiling, modestly Wong Kar-wai-ish rhapsody.” – Village Voice
“Oddly touching”- Jim Jarmusch
