I was going to write about Miike's magnificent Big Bang Love, Juvenile A today, but I have something more important to talk about. You can read a good review here, I ran into Igor at the film last night and he already wrote about it.
Okay. So, even though New York is the safest big city, it's still a big city. I regularly forget this. Last night, a friend of mine got robbed on his block by five or six guys, and he had to get seven staples in his head. Last year, another friend of mine got mugged in the East Village and was dragged down the street until her legs were a bloody mess.
New York feels so safe to me. Generally, if you have street smarts here you'll be fine, but then things like these happen. Be careful, guys. Look around. I will not be walking around at night with my iPod on anymore.
