Robert Longo (b. 1953)
Arena Brains (1987)
An extended short from painter-turned-filmmaker Robert Longo, who would later helm Johnny Mnemonic, Arena Brains consists of a series of interlocking vignettes set in New York City in the late 1980s. The stories – created by five different screenwriters, including Eric Bogosian, Richard Price, and Longo himself – are mostly loosely structured attempts at satirizing the neuroses and eccentricities of members of Lower Manhattan’s art community.
