Working from the same play (Arthur Schnitzler's "Reigen") as Max Ophul's cunningly witty and gracefully charming LA RONDE (1950), Vanderbes and Nuchtern threw away all the substance to create this wretched, boring depiction of the seedy side of Manhattan night life. The film has a similar

episodic structure as LA RONDE: a chain of sexual liaisons is created with one character from each episode moving onto a new affair that eventually evolves into an overlapping chain. There are nine such episodes, each as trite and uninteresting as its predecessor. The one bright spot in this

picture is McBroom as a sympathetic prostitute. NEW YORK NIGHTS was made in 1981, but legal problems delayed its release for three years--not nearly long enough. Look for Willem Dafoe as a punk rocker.
