by Robert Sarnoff. 2005. 40 min.
A genre bending docufiction about the drivers of the Belle-Rock car service. Dispatch takes us on a front seat journey to an emergency room, a 3:00 A.M. livery cab ride through Rockaway’s hardscrabble streets, and a bank robbery. Marlboro dangling from his lip, cup of Lipton in one hand, cell phone and land-line pressed against his ear, Jim, the dispatcher smiles, “You sit here, you get a rush.”
Post-screening discussion with director.
