a bit long, but chillingly revelatory, 14 May 2006

It's a must-see for every New Yorker. It helps us re-focus on what went on over the past two decades and clarifies just how the life blood of the city has been sucked out of it by the vampire passing for a priest. Giuliani mollified, MALLified and mummified the city, destroying every shred of creative, interpersonal and humanitarian energy that used to make the city great. Now Disneyfied, the Tragic Kingdom has turned into an armed camp of private parties for the rich, where people pay twenty dollars admission to a bar with beds and no dance floor passing for a club. Celebrations are staged police-managed barricaded photo-ops for the mega media, where tourists pretend to be New Yorkers having a good time. This documentary wakes us up to the reality. We see how the homeless have been placed in shelters in outer boroughs, out of sight and out of mind, penned in sterile internment barely better than prisons. We see how artists are rounded up like terrorists for displaying their work on what used to be the festive sidewalks of the Village. If you are one of those who has been zombified by the past twenty years of celebrating the antiseptic city, then you need to see this film. If it doesn't make you shed a few tears, then you are lost.
