Blue In The Face
A wacky group of locals visit the neighborhood cigar shop, looking for good times and finding plenty of hilarious fun. But when the greedy owner threatens to close the shop for good and turn it into a trendy vegetarian restaurant, the neighborhood proves they'll do just about anything to save their favorite hangout.
Lou Reed's appearance in the Brooklyn cigar store that's a haven for the neighborhood's oddball characters was widely considered to be one of the highlights of the sequel to Wayne Wang's SMOKE.
