it had too many films mentioned
4 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

it was to hard to follow as it had to many films mentioned...it was also very repetitive and Meryl Streep was emotionless and dull through out the duration of the documentary. there should have been more mention of 9/11 and its effect...it would have been much better if it had more focus on recent movies that explored the vertical and horizontal NY. such movies as "Down with love" and "Inderpendance Day" were not mentioned however they both show NY in the movies... there were a lot of movies being presented but it seemed like it was an effort to try waste time as many of them did not have any meaning. it should have been re thought and presented in a more entertaining way
