A Fantastic Piece of NYC
18 July 2008 | by axelfredericSee all my reviews

What a great little film! Having worked in the village for many years, this film really embodies what it used to be like. Creating a space for friends, having your own rules and forming a community out of a business is so far gone now. But this doc will stand the test of time. When people want to know what the Village was really like near the end of its days, tell them to watch this film. Say what you will about Kenny and family but they are true human beings. The film has a great pace and is a true doc in the Maysles bros. tradition. It has the perfect blend of customers comments, kitchen action, family dynamics and New York sights. I am happy that after another move, Shopsin's is still around. Rent it on Netflix and enjoy!
