518    Originally produced by Mark Rappaport in 1985. 
520    Made in Manhattan during the worst early depths of the 
       AIDS epidemic, this LA RONDE-style series of twosomes and 
       threesomes never directly mentions that crisis. But the 
       intricately interconnecting relationships glimpsed in 
       mosaic-like shards here exist in a similarly embattled 
       milieu, an urban war zone: war between the sexes (or 
       perhaps between the urges toward and against any kind of 
       intimacy). With Tin Pan Alley standard "Taking a Chance on
       Love" as ironic theme song, Rappaport's characters reach 
       out to one another but might get their hand bitten off as 
       thanks. Among them are a Vietnam vet (Mark Arnott) with 
       paranoid hallucinations; an emasculating ex-soap opera 
       actress (Marilyn Jones) whose tender side comes out only 
       when she sees herself in TV reruns; a gay man (Reed 
       Birney) whose involvement with a straight hustler proves 
       more than either of them can handle. As is this singular 
       writer-director's way, the drama is elliptical, the comedy
       slyly in-jokey and the narrative can run any which way, 
       encompassing a lecture on sharks, campy medical horror, 
       double-team prostitutes and yes, actual chain letters. 
       Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film 
       Festival.
