We'd been waiting for the opportunity to see this movie at the SLSC Imax for some time, so it was with no small amount of anticipation that we arrived on New Years Eve. We'd already procured the tickets online so we breezed through the entrance thinking how cool we were. Well, we learned only the 'Fonz can be cool. There was a line extending around both entrance doors. OK, no problem. We got in line and waited patiently as all good citizens should. This is where it started going south. I'm going to guess since it was the holiday, only junior staff members had to work. An usher/ticket taker encouraged several attendees to move to the other door, then proceeded to let all those people in while not opening the original door. HUH? So everyone who had waited the longest got in last. So not cool! On to the movie. I'm not sure I know exactly what I was expecting, but whatever it was, this wasn't it. The camera work was 'OK'. The structure and plot of the movie seemed to focus on holidays celebrated by different religions who live there (albeit not always peacefully) with a little history thrown in for appearance's sake. Maybe I'm too prejudiced, I was looking for more history and less holiday. In fairness, there were some pretty good scenes of the neighborhoods, but not enough to get a sense of what the city is really like. I wouldn't recommend it, but if for nothing else, it's worth going to remind us that we can live together in a harmonious society if we really try.
