Gabi on the Roof in July


reRun Gastropub Theater,
Friday January 21st - Thursday January 27th


Gabi on the Roof in July by Lawrence Michael Levine, 2010:



If you're in the NYC area, you should make some time over the next couple days to see my friend Larry's film, Gabi on the Roof in July, which is playing for a week at the new reRun Gastropub Theater in Dumbo.

It's a beautiful, thoughtful piece of work, and sports one of the most unusual (in a good way) paces I've seen in a recent film: the scenes unfurl with a calm at once enchanted and unnerving, and gradually accumulate into a recursive structure that suggests development, emotional progress, lies just beyond the characters' present reach. The drifting camerawork seems calibrated to a daydream, and lends the ambiance requisite to a portrayal of 2010 Brooklyn as a kind of mass performance space.
