Strange Little World

Portrays a hidden enclave of auto shops and junkyards fated for demolition in the shadow of a new baseball stadium in Queens. The film observes this vibrant community of immigrants -- where wrecks, refuse, and recycling form a thriving commerce -- as it struggles for daily survival and contests New York City's development scheme.

How to describe this movie. At first I honestly could not tell if this was a documentary or a strange independent film. This seemed like something a rogue filmmaker would come up with, not unlike Richard Linklater's "Slacker" in certain ways. But yet, it apparently is real.

I cannot say I really liked or disliked it. There was no message, no political position. It was just a look into a world that -- for better or worse -- was about to die. In many ways, that is the best way to make a documentary, without an agenda. But sometimes when you have nothing to say, your film says nothing. Is this film mute?
