In Jackson Heights

In Jackson Heights ★★★★½

sprawl that never feels didactic, every scene is endlessly watchable. seeing people handling themselves and participating in their various communities for so long is really sweet and rewarding, yet wiseman wisely (heh) never hesitates to undercut this with the creeping terrors that can engulf the neighborhood.

though i haven't seen either film i have to imagine this is just a strictly better version of that scorsese thing and Nomadland
