    Paul Stone's Tales Of Times Square

    "Documentary short film “Tales Of Times Square” by Paul Stone, on the surface, narrates the story of one of the most well-known strip joints in New York in the 1980s. However, at a broader level, the film provides social commentary on what life was like for people involved in porn industry at the time: sex, drugs, crime, corruption, and shattered dreams."

    Too bad it's a "short" film. Anybody know how many minutes it runs?

    UPDATE: I see on the IMDB that it runs 27 minutes, and that it was actually completed in 2006. Is there any way to see it these days?

    Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't noticed the link to the film. The text mentions that the film features "people from the book." What book is that?
