Watching “Pretend it’s a city” is like going back in time and hangin’ with members of the family long gone. It does not only indulge in the good old days (which they were) but revisits a culture almost completely forgotten. The beauty of complaint, the culture of dialectic opposition. Isn’t it great to watch a smart and funny grouch in a world of likes and wannabeliked.
Thank you Netflix and Martin Scorsese for putting Fran Lebowitz in the spotlight.
