Tales of Ordinary Madness Film Poster


Ben Gazzara stars as the grizzled, bleary, self-pitying and self-mocking neo-beat poet, Charles Serking. Serking is drinking himself to death - he rejects all offers of help, preferring the freedom of the streets, the inspiration of the bottle and the excitement of brief, sexual encounters. When he meets the beautiful, but mournful, prostitute Cass he begins to believe that love could redeem him, stop him drinking and get him writing again. However, Cass has sunk even lower than Serking and is trapped in a disturbing, downward spiral of self-hatred and mutilation which can only result in tragedy.
