Film description

The Panic in Needle Park flopped, a likely direct result of Jerry Schatzberg’s courage in showing addiction, warts and all. Schatzberg's nearly cinema verite film lacks music and is filled only with the sounds of the city, where the camera keeps its voyeuristic distance until it pushes in for a close-up of a needle injecting heroin. Drugs poison Bobby’s (Al Pacino) and Helen’s (Kitty Winn) stormy relationship. This is the actors' breakout, an absolute classic and forerunner of films such as Trainspotting and Requiem for a Dream.
