No Your City

Nicolas Heller beautifully documents some of the inspirational characters that bring New York City to life. His first episode follows an acrobatic rickshaw driver, and I recommend viewing the others, including a 6'7" freestyling Jew, the most charismatic shoeshiner in Manhattan, popular graffiti artist Hanksy, and most recently, an artist who puts on a non-narrative, nihilistic, anarchist puppet show about literary theory. Decide for yourself if the big city makes people crazy or attracts crazy to it, and if these subjects are brilliant, crazy, or products of their environment.
