Pretend It’s a City

Streaming on Netflix / Film & TV

So, who the hell is Fran Lebowitz? The question is tossed at the loquacious writer (she parries quickly and characteristically) in Martin Scorsese’s new documentary series, Pretend It’s a City, a ramble of seven episodes that consist largely of Lebowitz talking about her beloved New York City, sauntering about town in Levi’s and cowboy boots, and tearing up everything in her path. With the city largely shuttered, the series is also an ode to New York’s better days. —Alex Oliveira
