Aug. 17, 2012 - Boston.com - By Wesley Morris, Globe Staff

Special is the movie that makes Harlem seem like someplace else. The Harlem in “Restless City” is a lonesome place. It doesn’t bustle or jump or preen. Whatever chaos there is feels controlled. It’s haunted and homesick and mysterious — Harlem by way of West Africa, whose emigrants populate the film’s hovels, hair salons, and street corners. They supply the neighborhood with its edge, its cool, its danger, and its shirts with their beautiful prints.
