Filmmaker Frederick Wiseman, king of cinéma-vérité documentarians, takes his fly-on-the-wall camera crew to the title neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, where grassroots democracy is alive and growing. Dropping in on everything from a halal butcher shop to a Holocaust remembrance in a synagogue to a Latino transsexual support group, we see how this particular big-city community organizes itself around topic number one: the threat of gentrification by rich newcomers driving up rents. A wonderful portrait of contemporary manners and mores by the maker of High School, Boxing Gym, and Welfare (190 min.).
