Ever since the events of 9/11, Rudy Giuliani has become a name recognized the world over. His role as mayor during that catastrophe elevated him to the status of an international hero. He went on to be Time magazine's "Person of the Year," receive a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth and become a key fund raiser and energetic campaigner for the Bush/Cheney administration. Over the last year his name has been rumored as a popular choice for not only senator and governor but as America's envoy to the United Nations, the new director of the CIA and a number of other high-profile positions. He is also talked about as a favored candidate for the 2008 GOP Presidential nomination. But what defined "America's Mayor" before he was catapulted to a kind of secular sainthood? During the only years Giuliani held office as an elected official, what was his record like? What was behind a Republican "New Urban Paradigm" in an overwhelmingly Democratic city?

a bit long, but chillingly revelatory
14 May 2006 | by Rick NYC-2See all my reviews

It's a must-see for every New Yorker. It helps us re-focus on what went on over the past two decades and clarifies just how the life blood of the city has been sucked out of it by the vampire passing for a priest. Giuliani mollified, MALLified and mummified the city, destroying every shred of creative, interpersonal and humanitarian energy that used to make the city great. Now Disneyfied, the Tragic Kingdom has turned into an armed camp of private parties for the rich, where people pay twenty dollars admission to a bar with beds and no dance floor passing for a club. Celebrations are staged police-managed barricaded photo-ops for the mega media, where tourists pretend to be New Yorkers having a good time. This documentary wakes us up to the reality. We see how the homeless have been placed in shelters in outer boroughs, out of sight and out of mind, penned in sterile internment barely better than prisons. We see how artists are rounded up like terrorists for displaying their work on what used to be the festive sidewalks of the Village. If you are one of those who has been zombified by the past twenty years of celebrating the antiseptic city, then you need to see this film. If it doesn't make you shed a few tears, then you are lost.
