New York, I Actually Hate You

Trailer to New York I Love You. Directors include Scarlett Johnansson and Natalie Portman. Cast includes Robin Wright Penn, Isabelle Adjani, Kevin Bacon, Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom, Hayden Christiansen, and Ethan Hawke. From Moe's take-down: "New Yorkers are conned -- by their permalancer gigs and their sperm donors and their pretentious/prodigious collections of books written by misanthropic pervs and the commodity fetishism (not to mention the materialism!) and the constant distraction of mere survival when you have so many parties to attend and an overabundance of self-esteem -- into thinking that they are actually 'independent,' and that the last thing they want to be is 'codependent' when interdependence is the operating principle of human civilization."

I really enjoyed "Paris je t'aime" but am very skeptical about this one.
