20 years after “Kids” comes another hard-edged look at life on the streets of New York. This follows a young junkie (Arielle Holmes) as she mates, shoots up and struggles to exist (based on Holmes’ soon-to-be-published memoir “Mad Love in New York City”). The film sometime feels like a documentary, often set among pedestrian traffic, with a camera that lingers in extreme close-up during the seemingly improvised, repetitive and rough dialogue. With it’s jagged style, there are engrossing performances, inventive camerawork and a harsh energy that keeps it compelling. An intriguing art film that takes a raw, edgy look at heroine culture.
