I doubt that the movie could be as interesting as this review.

What Ignorance! Ali won those fights fair and square and "sports betting interests" had nothing to do with it.
Your mother loks well, like a cartoon
Henry, I think this is overly harsh. Yes, the film is entirely told from the viewpoint of a particular group of folks who moved to Northside Williamsburg around 1990 and have since been mostly gentrified out. Yes, it is narrow in its perspective and does not attempt to tell the socio-economic or cultural history of Williamsburg, or the political economy of gentrification. But I still thought it a valuable contribution to the conversation on gentrification. The entire neighborhood that Su Friedrich came to love over 15+ years was demolished around her and replaced by a nightmare of hideous cheaply built condominiums. A compelling personal look at the front lines of gentrification.
Awesome review. But...Why can't you folks include where the goddamn film is SHOWING? Are you trying to distinguish yourselves by eschewing usefulness?
Where does it open?
What an insanely articulate writer!
As part of the Dunham spawn, Karpovsky is part of the Apatow spawn. As part of the Dunham/Apatow spawn, Karpovsky roots himself firmly in the narcissistic netherworld of Generation Y. If Generation Y is to be measured in entertainment value by Lena Dunham's leavings, then by all likelihood, it never should have existed. At least then, "Girls" would have never happened, and "Tiny Furniture" wouldn't have been spewed on the world in all it's nauseating splendor.
What anyone associated with Dunham can't realize is that- nobody cares. Nobody cares that they make noise. Nobody cares that characters like Karpovsky are in love with themselves. No one cares anything about them. If the Russian meteorite landed smack on top of the whole naval-gazing troupe of "Girls," or the self-loving cast of "Sleepwalk..", the biggest concern of the viewers would be whether there was wine or beer in their fridge.
What about Karpovsky's leavings in these movies makes you wonder or care about any of the characters? This entire genre is the equivalent of the Jehovah's Witness who keeps coming to your door regardless of how many times you send them away- because they're SO CONVINCED that you should love them as much as they love themselves.
Put these idiots away somewhere.
Sounds like you didn't see the movie.
Sounds like a film to glorify prescription psychotropic drugs, the same drugs every single one of the widely sensationalized mass shooters have been on, including Adam Lanza.
This article is right that many great Kiarostami films are unavailable on Region 1 DVD or Blu-Ray. Others:
Where is the Friend's House?

Please restore the FUCK ED KOCH headline. He was a damaging asshole.
Bitch Please. The ONLY reason hipsters got on their proverbial soap boxes about the AIDS crises is that it predominantly affected white, gay, men in NYC. People like them.
I don't see any vitriol regarding the sub-Sahara epidemic, which STILL rages today and has infected over 5% of the entire population. Can Mr. Beckett (or, for that matter the filmmakers of How to Survive a Plague) even name the people in charge in dealing with that crises. Without a quick google search I would say not. Talk about whitewashing....
Ed Koch was an imperfect mayor who should be ashamed of the way he handled the AIDS crises and his relationship with the Black Community. But he did other things that were very effective in generating housing, gay rights (yes, look it up idiots) and education reform (which the above doc sadly missed). He wasn't the perfect leader, who is?
Sorry it's an even-handed film and not the "hit piece" you wanted.
The boy-in-a-blouse, above, has called me a fool.
But the boy-in-a-blouse cannot disagree the Koch got the redline around the City removed, allowing the underclasses access to capital for the first time since the war.
Koch's hand up created true social mobility, and did it without humiliating the poor like Lyndsay's relief handouts.
