The Times Picayune's Mike Scott writes "The Whole Gritty City" is Saturday's best bet at the New Orleans Film Festival

October 07, 2013

"There's not an award for the New Orleans-iest movie shown at the New Orleans Film Festival, but if there was, "The Whole Gritty City" would certainly be a contender -- if not a shoo-in -- to receive it this year. 

'The Whole Gritty City' is both a celebratory film -- filled with fanfares and snares, concerts and parades -- but also often a very emotional one, an at-times heartbreaking portrait of our at-times heartbreaking city."
