Love him or hate him, Ed Koch heated up New York's ambient temperature while he was the city's larger-than-life three-term mayor from 1978 to 1989, and in the wake of his administration.
Now, in his 80s, he's back big time.
Not as mayor, but as movie star.
Ed's the subject of Neil Barsky's comprehensive biodoc entitled -- not surprisingly -- Koch.
The film is being screened tonight larger than life at the IFC Center, with Barsky present for a Q&A.
The entertaining film reflects the many facets of the infinitely controversial Koch, and reveals some surprising intimacies.
So, New Yorkers, tonight's the night to get your Koch on. At the IFC Center.
Meanwhile, read my full review.
