No Picnic
In this small, independent production by a first-time director and the co-owner of a New York city music club named The Great Jones Cafe, a young man attempts to make his way in the music business and in the midst of his struggles becomes acquainted with all sorts of would-be musicians, great artists, and has-beens. One highlight of the film is its soundtrack, featuring The Raunch Hands, Raw Youth, and Richard Hell. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Well shot in fat-grained monochrome 16mm (by experimental filmmaker Peter Hutton, who typically turns his lens toward expansive landscapes), No Picnic partakes of the shabby-chic downtown aesthetic that was once a New York cinematic mainstay."
‑ Ed Halter, Village Voice
"Light comedy based in New York's East Village during its pre-gentrification days."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
