"I Like Killing Flies"

Last night this documentary about a small Greenwich Village restaurant was watched and enjoyed.  It was made in 2004 but was new to us.  The restaurant was Shopsin's, and it was well known here through the writing of Calvin Trillin who lived nearby the restaurant on Bedford Street(hey Yun Jae). The choice was long ago made not to go there, as it was clearly a neighborhood restaurant and I did not want to be an eavesdropping tourist from midtown or Long Island.  Only a New Yorker would have such a thought not to intrude.

Anyone with any experience in Manhattan will enjoy this short film.  Anyone without experience in Manhattan should enjoy this film.  Kenny Shopsin is a world class New York street philosopher that most will recognize.  His advice is precious even if crude.
