There are few surprises in Mary Tobler and Savoca's script as it progresses, but the director has always shown skill at accessing the inner lives of women.
The film attempts to affect an air of dispassionate objectivity, but generally comes across as an exercise in exploitation.
Without a well-delineated political or social framework, Union Square offers little that we didn't already know from, say, The Panic in Needle Park or Christiane F.
To most New Yorkers, the street addicts they encounter daily are nameless and faceless, and Union Square helps to humanize them.
A moving film but not, to be frank, an entirely memorable one.
Stephen J. Szklarski's video documentary tracks the lives of seven young drug addicts who live in and around Union Square Park in Manhattan.
An eye-opening view of people usually ignored or taken for granted.
The material is vivid and harrowing, although the movie provides little analysis or larger-scale context.
Like its seven subjects, it can't see past the immediate demands of addiction, and the film becomes a seemingly endless string of scenes depicting shooting up, nodding out and waiting around for the next fix.
Fails to ignite much emotion.
This is not a movie for the needlephobic
Spares no feelings as it peels away the harsh truths of living as a slave to a drug habit.
