Rockets Redglare!

This offbeat documentary looks at the life of offbeat personality Rockets Redglare, a colorful (to say the least) figure on the New York art scene until his death in 1990. Redglare appeared in some 30 movies, including several for pal Jim Jarmusch (Stranger Than Paradise, Down By Law, Mystery Train, ). He also served as a bodyguard/drug dealer for Sid Vicious and palled around with graffiti artist Jean Michel Basquiat. Willem Dafoe, Matt Dillon, Jim Jarmusch, Steve Buscemi, Nick Zedd and Indian Larry are among the friends who show up to offer insight into the man, the mystery. The film is overlong and overindulgent, but it's probably the only portrait you'll ever see of this punk rock answer to Zelig. 90 minutes
