Gourmet Cheese R Us
I'll stop there, but I have a longer post in me on how the whole Pittsburgh story can be seen in how the city has been portrayed in movies and TV. 25 years ago we were incognito in Hill Street Blues. Now we are the briefly run CBS series Three Rivers. No, I'm not ignoring the past-is-present Lighting Over Braddock, but allow me a moment of non-nabobism.
Honestly I can't comment on the movie or the Boston Globe's review with any objectivity though I think they took it a bit too seriously. I just can't imagine how a non-Pittsburgher sees that movie compared to those of us who live it ourselves. I knew too many people in the movie, and lived too much of it myself to really watch it for fun. The whole movie was like the Pittsburgh two degree rule on videotape. Without the secret decoder ring it must have come across as a bit quirky.
