A young and aimless jazz musician named Marty (Alfred Molina) lives with his strange dog in a shabby, haunted house within a community that seems not to exist. Two playful spirits (Marianne Faithfull and Rachael Bella) are linked to a rocking chair in the home—that they cannot shake—and both interact with Marty as he navigates the relationships in his life with a variety of characters. His go-go dancer girlfriend (Maggie O’Neill) and the angry owner of a local, sleazy bar (Seymour Cassel) are also interconnected with Marty’s otherworldly housemates. The whimsical film was shot by master cinematographer Robby Müller and features an electric score by Joe Strummer of The Clash. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
