Luis Fernandez de la Reguera directs the documentary Rockets Redglare!, a portrait of the New York personality from his early days around '50s hustlers to the East Village crowd of the '80s to his tragic death in 2001. Born Michael Morra in 1949, Rockets Redglare is a creative personality, enthusiastic performer, and a serious survivor. A life-long scenester, Rockets could be called many things, not the least of which are standup comedian, bodyguard, drug dealer, and actor. Features interviews

The film goes on too long, repeats itself and has a reality-TV tendency to wallow in the tawdry.
Maybe the world has just seen too many outrageous East Village characters at this point, but Morra comes off as nothing special.
There's a human tragedy here waiting to be told; what we get, however, is a sordid, grotesque freak show.
