Artless documentary, 1 November 2010
Author: jjrous from United States

Union Square is an interesting, but artless, documentary; with the subject matter and a colorful cast of main characters it could have been much better.

Viewers who aren't familiar with Union Square in New York City will learn nothing of the neighborhood. Where does Union Square sit in relation to other Manhattan landmarks? What are the immediately surrounding blocks like? Who hangs out in Union Square other than the heroin users? What are relations like between the police and the users? What about neighborhood merchants and the users? Also, the repeated use of five or six talking heads should have been broken up with, perhaps, newsreel footage about the history of drug use in that neighborhood, movie or literary treatments of the subject matter, etc.
