Adapted from the controversial stage play by Jules Feiffer (Carnal Knowledge), this savage, nihilistic black comedy was the startling directorial debut of actor Alan Arkin.
When a severely depressed fashion photographer (Elliott Gould , M*A*S*H, The Long Goodbye, California Split) meets an optimistic young woman (Marcia Rodd , Citizens Band, Last Embrace), she is determined to save him amidst the series of random muggings, sniper shootings, garbage strikes and total blackouts that are ravaging the city of New York.
