Broken Meat, a Film by Pola Rapaport

A beat poet, Alan Granville, as iconoclastic as New York is. As crazy, as miserable, as superb. Wrapping the same way his misery in a plethora of words, in a myth built to seduce and to leave you puzzled. To understand the spirit of New York one needs to understand guys like Alan Granville, a huge talent in battle with a Moloch mocking of any talent. He experienced homelessness, drug addiction, and mental illness. He fought them with humor and with a sense of what destiny means: I was in the land of nowhere and I found there holiness.

This is a Broken Meat, a movie made by Pola Rapaport in 1991. The image is signed by Wolfgang Held. A New York that opens to you slowly and pensively, seamy and superb.

I had the chance to watch this movie long time ago, and I am glad that it is now on youTube.
