Description: This movie is a stark portrayal of life among a group of heroin addicts who hang out in "Needle Park" in New York City. Played against this setting is a low-key love story between Bobby, a young addict and small-time hustler, and Helen, a homeless girl who finds in her relationship with Bobby the stability she craves. She becomes addicted too, and life goes downhill for them both as their addiction deepens, eventually leading to a series of betrayals.

Movies of Sound Era Without Musical Score (27 movies items)

" There is no music in this movie whatsoever. Ned Rorem composed a score for the film that was ultimately removed from the final cut (the isolated score is included as a special feature on the Blu-ray)."

"First viewing - May 22nd Recommended by moviewatcher122 Drugs are bad, mmkay? Heroin's bad...you shouldn't do heroin, mmkay? That pretty much sums up the whole film. Oh sure the performances are really good, especially Pacino since it's back when he was trying to prove himself. And yeah it's pretty graphic & realistic in its depictions of junkies and the hell they put themselves through as addicts. But it's not a very fun film aside from a handful of moments when Pacino is goofing off. At leas"
