Props to Ramin Bahrani for showing the other more real face of Queens. If I didn't know better, I would have thought it's filmed in some third-world country, not in Willets Point.

Wow. It might actually be good, except it perpetuates the image of Willets Point merely a blight to be bulldozed.

Actually, it doesn't - I saw the film at Toronto, and I think it shows good reason not too - you see how this is a community where people live and work. It might not be Times Square, but it is home for many. It was an amzing film. I can't wait to see the new taxi film!

This place will be the new hip "in" locale. Watch and see.

George, I think so too...It is sooo convenient to the park and all the attractions(zoo,playgrounds/fields,walking trails along the lake) Not too mention the Hall of Science...Hmmm That's why the city wants the grounds for housing and commercial development...LIRR,stadiums,etc.

Hopefully not coming soon to a theater near us. It should have been set in Iraq rather than Queens.

This is a realistic and unsentimental look at the lives of countless immigrants from many countries. Amazing film! and even though it may be a bleak view of Willets Point, it ends on a hopeful note: The 'American Dream' works for many (yeah, not always) who work hard....
