Story of a Junkie

1984 R 1h 48m DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
During the 1980s, Manhattan wasn't all about partying, making money and living the good life. For John Spacely, aka Gringo, it is a much darker time, as his focus quickly spirals from seeking his fortune in the city to feeding his heroin addiction. Director Lech Kowalski shoots Gringo's desperate story in cinema verité style, capturing the gritty day-to-day life of a junkie in all its harrowing detail.
