In a world before luxury condos and Whole Foods

Time is almost up to catch Lionel Rogosin’s riveting time capsule On the Bowery, which is now back by popular demand at Film Forum. Released in 1956, it was shot on the once-decrepit Skid Row, notorious for its flophouses and gin mills packed with rowdy drunks. Wrote our own Michael Atkinson in his review: “Anyone who’d like near firsthand familiarity with the Lower East Side of the postwar years need look no further; Rogosin’s underseen landmark wades into the notorious human ruins as no film ever did.”
