Film Critic A.O. Scott

Eddie Huang talks to film critic A.O. Scott of the New York Times.

Scott talks about his history with New York, saying that “I’ve lived in Brooklyn for a long time, more than twenty years… family roots go back three generations.” He calls Spike Lee “one of the great sons of Brooklyn,” and discusses his place in the ongoing discussion about gentrification, saying that “there’s very little discussion of the social and economic violence that drives some of it.” He also acknowledges that “anyone who is likely to be talking about this issue is implicated.”
