Aaron Katz United States, 2007

dAlton Anthony's rating of the film Quiet City

I am glad that I watched this for the captivating ambiance, nice film work and what it has to say about intimacy. The problem is that it never gets beyond the tape-loop of upper-class whiteness. There is no diversity in this film. No people of color, no deviant sexuality, no radical impulse. This is an antiseptic New York/Brooklyn pipeline and Aaron Katz seems quite content to keep within these elitist confines.
