"I have always lived my life in the profession of being." - Quentin Crisp. The widely acclaimed RESIDENT ALIEN chronicles the adventures of cult figure Quentin Crisp, a flamboyantly eccentric Englishman who once pursued fame across the razor-sharp edges of Manhattan. Both actor and chronicler of Manhattan?s Downtown, Crisp and his band of stars, demi-stars and wannabe Warhol Superstars, Holly Woodlawn, improbable sex prodigy Felicity Mason, Sting, and John Hurt (who played Crisp in the autobiographical The Naked Civil Servant) weave a vision of New York that constantly disturbs the boundary between fantasy and reality. Award-winning director Jonathan Nossiter (Mondovino, Sundance Grand Prize Winner Sunday and Signs & Wonders) mirrors Crisp's delight for the unorthodox with an energetic and wildly original blend of documentary and fiction. Together they lay bare the last days of New York?s fabulous Downtown scene and its art world follies.
