Critic Reviews for ZIPPER: Coney Island's Last Wild Ride
The story isn't over by the time "Zipper" ends, but Nicholson manages to close on a nostalgic, if not quite hopeful, note.
More effective as a loving send-off than an insightful look at the so-called "tides of progress" that have led to Coney Island's slow decline.
"Zipper'' tells a story of a Coney Island that is still very much a work in progress, and where there seems to be no room for small-time operators like Eddie Miranda.
Though not terribly nuanced, a bit muddled and lacking certain perspectives, "Zipper" drives home the fragile identity of even the city's signature locales and the alarming cultural myopia of much redevelopment ...
Combining footage of embattled town meetings and raucous boardwalk scenes with evenhanded interviews and visualized statistics, Zipper is a compelling argument for a populist Coney Island whose days are, alas, numbered.
