Episode #976: Duck Season
First Broadcast: 12/25/23
The Metrograph movie theater in Manhattan recently ran a series based on films released around the year 2000, which was highlighted in a Gothamist article titled "Was Y2K era the best for films?" Many cinephiles would argue that 1939 might be the best year ever for American films, and several other years could also vie for that title, but I personally would make the case for the year 1982, and not just because Poltergeist, Star Trek II, E.T., Blade Runner, and The Thing were all released in the same month! By the way: Whatever happened to that new John Woo movie, Silent Night? Ponder that as we end the year, why don't you?
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
