PegLegPete Reminds me of Twelve Monkeys actually. What with the signs and symbols being everywhere and receiving attention (though in the movie not many people paid attention), yet the meaning actually being rather inconsequential, and the visibility only really being a distraction to other events or questions that are generally ignored.
The passing contempt for the '60's "agitator" was also kinda amusing, along with the cynical attitude towards the entire lower east side, poor people, drug addicts, and misfits; all the while maintaining a shred of arrogant sympathy towards those poor dregs of society and how they're barely able to control their animal nature. Evil.

Old People I'm 75% sure that the guy in the red t-shirt with dyed-blond hair and glasses, seen dancing and smiling in the first few minutes, is my wicked punk-rock-loving uncle, C-Squat's very own Popeye!
