Set in a fictional Hudson City, N.J. and featuring a massive ensemble cast, Sayles’ ambitious long-take widescreen epic is a granular deconstruction of problems plaguing modern American metropolis, predating The Wire in its novelistic depiction of systemic corruption in everyday life. An underseen high water mark of 1990s independent film. (Dec ’91 to Feb ’92)
