Chelsea on the Rocks

Rated R (MPAA) 88 min. 2009

The documentary blends archival footage with an enigmatic interview style fitting for the Bronx-born enfant terrible Ferrara. Past and current residents wax poetic of the bohemian playground's storied history, mysterious metaphysics, and deified long time owner Stanley Bard. Bard was forced out by the hotel's board in 2007, and the Chelsea's inglorious past was threatened with a corporate makeover.
