7th Street (2003)

A documentary about Alphabet City and its gradual changes over the last thirty years. Director Josh Pais is ambivalent about the transition his neighborhood has gone through and tries to capture that onscreen, telling stories and interviewing old neighborhood characters; the result is an uneven but occasionally enthralling film that doesn't overstay its welcome. Without a doubt the best film ever directed by a former Ninja Turtle.

Grade: B-
