Chronic City

★★★★☆

Review:

A weird, allusive, totally fascinating alternate-universe New York City that magnifies and distorts the real world. It could have been boring—there is a lot of sitting around in apartments or at parties listening to stories—but I was entertained. This is kind of like an old Woody Allen movie, but with robotic tigers and exotic weed to drive the plot along.

★★★★☆
