Book Friendzy! visits Film Noir Video in Greenpoint Brooklyn

I recently checked in with Will Malitek, owner and founder of Film Noir Video in Greenpoint Brooklyn. This is one of my favorite destinations in the neighborhood. A place to go to pick up a good film or record. One can also have a great conversation about arcane film subjects or musical genres such as psych, krautrock, or prog, in an enthusiastic unpretentious environment-a rarity in these parts! Enjoy....!
