Audience Reviews for Restless City

  • Feb 18, 2015
    In "Restless City," Djibril(Sy Assane) is a recent immigrant to New York City from Dakar, Senegal. Currently, he makes his living as a sidewalk vendor. Sometime in the future, he hopes to make a living through his own music. Enter Trini(Sky Grey). "Restless City" could be thought of as a sincere examination of an immigrant's struggles in America. Making matters harder is his running afoul of the wrong people. At least, that's what I thought it might be about, as "Restless City" is so drowning in style and jump cuts, it is hard to make sense of some of it. It's all the more aggravating and confounding, considering this kind of difficult approach is not the right way to go with the limited means on display.
