Ultra stylistic
3 May 2003 | by (Toronto Canada) – See all my reviews

I Just saw this film at the Hot Docs International Documentary Festival in Toronto - and it blew me away. I have never seen a film use black & white still photography in such a stylistic manner while weaving in color video clips to present such an incredible story. I can't wait to head back to New York to find this place (or its location anyway). Fascinating people, place, music and time period. This film packs a lot into 23 minutes.
