The Scorsese of Lower Greenville
Look, when, on a Sunday afternoon, you get an e-mail from Avi Adelman bearing the subject line, "This is your face after telling the restaurant manager you want to smoke crack in the bathroom...," you're going to see it through to the end. Turns out, Avi has added to the film festival he's currently running over on the YouTube this short film about a man whose problems caught up with him on Saturday night on Lower Greenville, where Avi lurks around every corner in the hopes that someone, somewhere, will shout, "Action!" The mean streets, indeed. --Robert Wilonsky
