So, as a semi-unemployed cinefile sitting around my apartment with high-speed internet, I have been working through the Netflix catalog with all movies that have “New York” in it.
As my avid readers know, I basically tore New York I Love You! a new one. In retrospect I totally get why it didn’t and I can’t remember if I explained, BUT if you want to talk more get at me, or tweet my ass.
Gangs of New York
- This is a great movie. For a while I couldn’t find it, because up here it’s just called Gangs. Daniel Day Lewis really works Leo over, and as we all know, Leo is such a heart-throb. I can only watch it in 10 minute installments though, but it’s great.
Escape From New York
- A classic. It’s great to see this place in turmoil but with John Waters at the helm. A good time and you can’t really beat the late-80s-post-apocalyptic aesthetic channelled here.
More films to check out (this is a note to self):
- Manhattan Murder Mystery
- New York, New York
