Storyline

Philosophy professor Walter Zarrow is wounded during a mugging. In an effort to escape he rings buzzers indiscriminately, waking Sam, a middle aged father of two having an affair in the city. Sam reluctantly answers Zarrow's pleas, and Zarrow loses consciousness in his arms. Through an exploration of why these men, along with the mugger, and an addict named Joe, come together, we explore New York City. The experience of Zarrow, Sam, Joe and Zarrow's assailant ripple quickly out to include the connected lives of a housewife struggling with alcoholism, a stoner teen desperate to lose his virginity, a brilliant but failed writer fighting addiction, two parents confronting the prospect of terminal illness, and a brilliant grad student who wounds herself to feel alive.

This is New York. Great story
19 May 2015 | by StorytellerKefiSee all my reviews

Wonderful movie! Randomly caught this at the 2015 TriBeCa Film festival and was not disappointed. Although there were some minor editing hiccups, this story about holds up fantastically as it documents the lives of different New Yorkers. The dialogue is clever. The acting performances were authentic. And as the plot got predictable, it made a left turn for a satisfying ending. This movie was everything Crash (2004) wanted to be but better. It's also the most honest depiction of New York life I've seen in a long while. The story gives food for thought and deserves a watch. I wish this movie well in theaters! -Kefi Maxwell. redpencritic.wordpress.com
