A Sick City Wall
by The Window Shopper
On Thompson just north of Canal is a sick city wall!
Captured after an amazing afternoon at the Winter Garden in Battery Park and just before going to see Pedro Almodovar’s new thriller The Skin I Live In (La piel que habito), ironically I was all over Manhattan yesterday. On our walk through Soho we ran into cap clad Joseph Gordon-Levitt dining al fresco, perused butterflies and other such taxidermy creatures at Evolution & stopped into Uniqlo to check out their architecturally inclined Jill Stuart collab.
The Skin I live in was provocative and beautiful, both thematically and cinematographically. Dark and unabashedly scathing in its portrayal of base human moral, it is one of the best films I have seen in some time (mind you I go to the movies weekly). With a narrative timeline that fans outward like the petals of a rose, I was fed answers and given new questions all at the same time.
Lucky for me Landmark Sunshine is right next door to one of my favorite bars in the city, outdoor bar, also known as Macondo, a perfect 68degree day was polished off with a perfect tamarind & tequila, and plenty of tapas.
