He is also associated with the birth of No Wave Cinema due to films such as The Foreigner (1978), featuring Eric Mitchell, Debbie Harry, Anya Phillips, and Subway Riders (1981), starring Susan Tyrrell, Robbie Coltrane and Cookie Mueller. During this time he was also the director of the Public-access television cable TV show TV Party hosted by Glenn O'Brien and Chris Stein.

He is part of the Remodernist film movement, which he described as the next development of Postmodernist and the transformation of existing cultural features, but "using the technology and the sensibility of contemporary rather than nostalgia". "My idea of my work's importance is to see how it moves the culture to where I'd like to see it," Poe said in a 1981 interview.


In 2008, he wrote the screenplay for the 2008 Amy Redford film The Guitar.
