Reposted from @amos.poe "Alphabet City feels like a best kept secret that the coolest filmmakers and musicians keep imitating and never want to show you because they don't want you to know who they are stealing from… it might be the most 80's thing ever put on film, there is much more at play in this absolutely gorgeous style exercise. Director Amos Poe shoots the gritty nighttime world of early 80s New York as a surreal and color splashed fantasy. The bombed out husks of buildings and trash-strewn streets are washed in vibrant purples and greens… the look of this film is lush and hypnotic… the greatest discovery is the soundtrack and score by legendary @nilerodgers … every song and music queue sounds like the hottest track… it is impressionistic, noirish, and operatic. Overtly cool and effortlessly magnificent. I've never seen anything like it."– Joshua T. Ruth, @letterboxd (October 3,2020)Super grateful for waiting 36 yrs. for this. Patience is a virtue.
