The ultimate New York gentrification movie, the bittersweet, coolly outraged, and deeply compassionate The Landlord stars Beau Bridges as a WASP ofay collecting rent in c. 1970 Park Slope. A once-in-a-generation confluence of talent both in front of the camera (Diana Sands, Marki Bey, Louis Gossett, Jr., and Pearl Bailey), and behind, including DP Gordon Willis, director Ashby, and screenwriter Bill Gunn.
