Aquarius ★★★★

Questionable real estate acquisitions such as Aquarius are rampant in NYC, LA, and many other large urban areas in the US.  The tactics vary, but the end result is large projects, high rents, displaced residents. 

The movie Aquarius documents the lives, the memories, the histories that are eradicated with these tactics. It’s a well-directed film, wasting no time in presenting an expansive  catalogue of family and friends, activities and community. The acting is spot on. No documentary could have breathed such humanity into the subject or quantified the loss so well.
