Kenny Shopsin runs Shopsin’s General Store a diner in Essex Market on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. “I Like Killing Flies” paints a vivid picture of the man described by Time Out as "the foul-mouthed middle-aged chef and owner” and what can reasonably be described as his very individual approach to running an eating place. At one stage there were 900 items on the menu, served from a tiny kitchen - these days it’s half that.
Be warned, Shopsin’s is not to everyone’s taste and Kenny’s philosophical discourses are liberally seasoned with profanities. If you want to get more of an idea about the film before you commit, the trailer is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QLHygGTjjU
