Lust, exploitation, and unrequited love are the competing impulses in a zine poet's self-conscious and rambling account of a wasted weekend in the city. A young record clerk swoons over David Cassidy and numerous other men, including a well-built, uninhibited Iowa cousin and a rough-trade masochist, oblivious of those in love with him. Director Everett Lewis creates a queer artsy slacker scene in which everything is permissible and camaraderie comes easy but few relationships take hold. Aside from a sadistic big-time rocker, he treats the characters with an insider's affection; the film flits from one messy liaison to another and in time is muddled by them. 92 min.
