Movie Info

Late in the nineteenth century, Henry May, New York's golden child, has reached the end of a long road to self-destruction. In debt and drug addicted, he is simply marking time until his eventual exile into poverty and oblivion. On the other side of the city Henry Long carefully observes May's decline, devoting his brilliant mind to the constant surveillance of his former school friend. May and Long finally meet and begin a complicated and dangerous odyssey that leads them to the sea and beyond. The houses and families of New York's golden age as well as the timeless underworld of the city are vividly brought to life as May and Long journey to the possible resolution of both their troubled lives. Both men discover what they have lost to get where they are, what they are willing to risk to get what they want and what they are willing to lose to live.

The production makes the most of shoestring means, however, with many a candlelit colloquy, though the apparent background reading in Lowlife and New York by Gas-Light is more alluded to than illustrated.

Audience Reviews for Henry May Long

A movie about two old friends who lost touch, but at the right moment meet again. One Henry is very sick and the other Henry is in a very larger debt and trying to figure out how to get out of it before his employer tells his father. So when they meet the sick one decides to make a deal with the other one which happens to be that if he takes care of him until he dies he will pay off his whole debt, but it sounds too good to be true and the truth will be relieved. This movie was just a waste of time and there was nothing good about it. You never really care about the characters beacuse they are so self involved that you don't care what happens to them. Also the movie isn't that long, but it's so boring and they always seem to be talking about the same thing that the movie drags on and on. I would never watch this movie again and I dont think anybody else should either.
