Carti doesnt offer lofty metaphors, or skywritten
punchlines, or any kind of traditional narrative arc but that doesnt stop every sound that materializes on his tongue from sounding electric, spontaneous and alive.
As part of this interior film, enormous underlined letters are being skywritten
by an airplane above spelling out the word "HELP." The camera in Allen's film, however, also tilts up to the word in the sky as do ordinary people on Allen's larger New York City scene who look up from the street, from offices, from a sightseeing bus, and from a construction job with men jack-hammering into the city's pavement.
