Larry Cohen’s New York

Irrepressible and prolific, writer-producer-director and native New Yorker Larry Cohen is a true original. Over the course of 60 years in film and television, he has become a master at taking ingenious premises and using them to playfully subvert and rethink genre movies of all stripes, with mischievous social commentary always in the mix. Here we focus on seven films shot on his home turf, where the city becomes a playground for his idiosyncratic cinematic genius and outrageous high-concept imagination.
