Every Rose Has Its Thorn, 16 October 2005
Author: Spuzzlightyear from Vancouver

Giuliani Time is an interesting, if somewhat overlong, movie that exposes Rudolph Giuliani's record on a number of issues while he was Mayor of New York and before of course, he became the patriarchal saint leading New York out of September 11th. Narrated mostly by a newspaper editor who seems to have a BIG bone to pick with him, Giuliani Time focuses on his drive to clean up New York City, tone down crime, and other things, well, that you would expect a mayor to do. Somehow, and here's a surprise here, some corruption and social injustice happens! Ohhhh nasty stuff here! Really, imho, this film almost makes a mountain out of molehill, by exposing some dirt that hardly seems dirty. Yes, his father was a Mafioso type of person. Giuliani even admits that in the film! But if you're looking for stuff like he ate-his-first-born, (he didn't by the way) then you're bound to be disappointed. To be honest, I actually enjoyed this film, you could say, for all the wrong reasons. I looked into this film more as a glimpse into a city in transition over anything else. Although some people mourn the loss of the seedier underbelly of Times Square in New York (it's still there, just not in Times Square), I found it was needed for the changing times. This film shows what had to be done.
