I saw a preview screening of Koch sponsored by the Austin Film Society.
It is a excellent documentary that presents an honest human portrait of
the iconic larger-than-life one-time New York mayor who came to
symbolize his great city. While the recently-deceased Ed Koch
cooperated and was extensively interviewed in 2010 for the film, it is
neither hagiography or a political hit piece. It is fair-minded and
shows Koch as a politician who had great successes and great failures.
We see Koch go from a crusading liberal in the 1960s to a more
conservative pro-business politician in the 1980s. We hear the
criticism of his opponents and the praise of his friends. We see his
successes in housing and city finances and his highly controversial
actions to close a Harlem hospital and break a transit workers strike.
The film is empathetic to the older Koch, but also shows him making
unflattering comments. In one scene, he argues with a nephew against
efforts to build a mosque downtown near the site of the former WTC. He
seems to be siding with highly intolerant forces who took up that
cause. He often seems to have problems with the African-American
community. Koch was a controversial figure and the film capture him in
all his complexity and cantankerousness. For folks who grew up watching
Ed Koch the film is a trip down memory lane. I recommend it strongly to
fans of political documentaries - whether or not you were a fan of The
