Movie Info

Welcome to Williamsburg, New York's new bohemia. Or is it? In the late 1980s artists moved into this working class neighborhood, populated by small manufacturers, Polish butchers, and auto repair shops, just across the East River. SoHo took 30 years to change from an artists' bohemia to an art gallery hotspot, to an outdoor shopping mall; Williamsburg's demise has been much faster, due in part to a 2005 zoning law change. With a winning combination of wit, anger, and political savvy, filmmaker

Rather than invoking sympathy or shared outrage, the filmmaker creates a kind of complicity with her audience, particularly as she explores the depressingly similar, sterile apartments of the high-rises steadily surrounding her.

The result is like an hour and a half listening to someone bellyache about her landlord.

The navel-gazing artist class that gave Williamsburg its character (now more of a marketable "brand") has in Friedrich both a vigorous defender and, it must be said, something close to an angry parody of itself.

Rightfully angry, but too simplistic, annoying and tedious.

An all out assault on NY real estate developers and their nonstop drive to turn one of the world's great cities into a Tower of Mammon.

Very DIY project covers the scary gentrification of a beloved New York neighborhood, but ends up being more a whine-fest than truly powerful.

Due to the one-minded construction of the documentary, there's little to parse beyond impassioned harrumphs.
