No love for Rudy…

From Roger Friedman at

One thing’s for certain: young New Yorkers who are voting now have no nostalgia for the early days of Rudolph Giuliani ‘s run as mayor.

In Jonathan Levine’s Sundance film, “The Wackness,” one of three films here generating a lot of buzz so far, Giuliani’s policies β€” particularly his crackdown on drugs β€” gets constant mention.

The main character in the film is a middle-class high school drug dealer whose clients are mostly on the Upper East Side. During the movie there are at least a half dozen cracks about Giuliani designed to show disdain for him.

It’s quite a statement about young adults now in their late twenties and early thirties who have no affection for the former mayor as he attempts to run for president.

Rudy is quite a thug. How dare he take drugs off the streets and clean up the disgusting hell-hole left by the Mayor of Tennis.

You tell ’em, Hollywood. Let’s put the crime and drugs back on the streets. To hell with law, order and civility! Bring back Dinkins! Bring back Koch! Break out the hookers and blow! Let’s party like it’s 1985!
