Brooklyn on the Bowery (1994) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1994 , Documentary)

Shot in grainy black and white, this is a smooth slice of New York's time-warped barber shop culture. Immensely stylish and laid back, Brooklyn on the Bowery exudes an irresistible 50s style and look. You can almost smell the single cuts (remember them?), Brylcream and hot towels as these old Brooklynites philosophise over a cigarette, a shave and a trim.
