Pleasures of Urban Decay is an offbeat film about Ben Katchor, who has been hailed as the creator of the last great American comic strip. Katchor’s Yiddish-inflected voice guides us through a vast and shadowy landscape of old skyscrapers, neglected warehouses, lay-away stores and all-night cafeterias. This documentary premiered at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival and has been exhibited in museums around the world, from MoMA-NY to Jewish Museums all over Europe, the U.S. and Latin America.
