Restless City has been much buzzed about since its debut at the Sundance Film Festival last year. Watching this movie is like some sort of visual massage - Nigerian director Andrew Dosunmu uses the landscape of New York City to frame the story of an African immigrant who finds himself mixed up in a world of trouble when he falls for a beautiful callgirl under the thumb of a vindictive gangster. Everything about this movie oozes style and a sort of film noir quality reminiscent of films like Drive, only in an even more dynamic, even more engaging way. - Zeba Blay
