Storyline

When a marriage of convenience becomes the real thing, Joe moves his pregnant French wife to a tenement building on New York's Lower East Side. The street is like a war zone with none of the nostalgic appeal that Joe remembers from tales of his immigrant grandparents arriving in the same neighborhood with a new life. This is the urban frontier filled with comic mixture of gentrifies, homeboys, dealers and local residents simply bent on staying a float. Written by Anonymous

strange tenants
16 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kill the Poor is about a group of people living in a formerly abandoned apartment building in a bad area of NY. One of the group, Carlos and his son, cleaned up the building that was infested with addicts and dealers before anyone else got there. As other weirdoes move in they formed a corporation and wanted to secure the building further, but the intimidating Carlos didn't feel he had to pay rent to the corporation because he made the building a draw in the first place. Conflicts arose and between the scenes and the flashbacks you get the whole story by the end. A little bit of a surprise ending, but nothing too far out. Good acting, camera work and a decent screen play. Some problems with editing.
