PRAY FOR BABY BOY FRANKIE BONO!

The trailer and amazing opening sequence for "Blast Of Silence", an incredible late period noir recently given the high-falutin' Criterion treatment. Supposedly one of Martin Scorcese's favorite "NYC movies", it's a wonderful wallow in low budget squalor. Written, produced, and directed by Allen Baron, who also tackles the lead role, it's an existential bum trip no self respecting film junkie should be without. This minor masterpiece must have come screaming from Baron's Id because he never directed anything else of any import unless you count various episodes of almost every TV show from the 70's & 80's from Charlie's Angels to Dukes Of Hazzard.
