Brief thoughts on Bowery (2022) Tribeca 2022

BOWERY is a wonderful film. A deeply moving portrait of people living on the street in the Bowery section of New York City, it is warts and all portrait of some good people in a bad circumstance. I was moved.

One of the biggest head scratching moments to come out of Tribeca is why BOWERY didn't play in person at the festival (it played on line). The Bowery is down the street across  Manhattan from the area that gives the festival its title.  Its a film that is rooted deeply in New York City and the festival should have put it up on the big screen. 

I really liked this film a great deal. Being someone who frequented the areas in the film I felt at home. I loved that the film didn't judge anyone. It simply let everyone be, with the result being is a documentary of great power.

A must see.
