Editorial Reviews

WHAT ABOUT ME portays the gradual deterioration of Lisa Napolitano (Rachel Amodeo) a young women forced to exist on the streets, intermingling with the outcasts of society. Along the way she encounters a shell-shocked Vietnam veteran, Nick (Richard Edson); a nihilistic East Village, Tom (Nick Zedd); and a sympathetic good samaritan, Paul (Richard Hell). WHAT ABOUT ME was filmed in black and white on location in Tompkins Square Park and the Lower East Side. Gregory Corso, Judy Carne, Johnny Thunders, Jerry Nolan and Dee Dee Ramone appear in addition to the homeless residents of the park. The soundtrack includes music by Johnny Thunders.

4.0 out of 5 stars See this film May 4, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I bought this movie without knowing too much about it because of Dee Dee Ramone and Richard Hell. I enjoyed the movie immensely. In a nutshell, a young woman winds up homeless after the aunt she lives with dies and her creepy landlord expects her to pay the rent in sexual favors. Indignant, she winds up homeless, where she hooks up with a lovable yet dimwitted partner in crime. Together they help each other survive and fall in love along the way. They meet Dee Dee Ramone, a spaced-out Vietnam vet, Richard Hell, a Good Samaritan, and Nick Zedd, a hilariously angry young man who takes our heroine in for a bit and winds up stealing the movie. I won't spoil the ending but it's well worth seeing.

Rachel does a great low budget black and white gripping movie. see Johnny Thunders and Richard Hell and Dee Dee Ramone act! see the lower eastside way of life ,the plight of the homeless . how it can happen to anyone,even a naive young girl,watch her hurdled out into the night alone, begging for food and love. Great Johnny Thunders sound track see the great New York punk pioneers (most dead now) in this movie bravo Rachel. mike spent

5.0 out of 5 stars exceptional March 24, 2009
Format:DVD
I loved this movie. Anyone who wants to know the real deal or just spent time there and wants to see some familiar faces will love it. I's about having the balls to make your dream happen for you, and it's completely authentic. Ms, Amodeo is one to watch!

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad for low budget indi film May 7, 2007
Format:DVD
If you bear in mind that this is a low budget independent film, it's enjoyable. It's gritty, seeing nyc's lower east side before gentrification is pretty cool, many of the scenes seem authentic, and some of the characters are very humorous. The plot is a little choppy, the now-dead punk icons (thunders, nolan, dee dee ramone) make cameo appearances in scenes that have little to do with the plot-- but it's good to see them. The scene with dee dee is actually so dee-dee, if you've ever seen an interview with dee dee. Richard Hell is the exception-- he has something of a role and for once plays a nice guy (in 'smithereens' and 'blank generation' he played not very sympathetic character roles). You also get to see Maryanne Bracken-- who plays main character "Lisa"'s aunt (Bracken is Johnny Thunders' sister). And the film is short enough that the weaknesses don't become too detracting to the enjoyment of the film.
