Giuliani Time

Giuliani Time is a 2005 documentary film by Kevin Keating about Rudy Giuliani, former Mayor of New York City.

The film contains several archival segments, as well as interviews with Village Voice writer and unauthorized Giuliani biographer, Wayne Barrett and radio journalist Doug Henwood.The documentary's title is a reference to a phrase that police officers allegedly uttered to Abner Louima when they tortured him in a Brooklyn police precinct house. Louima himself later recanted that statement, saying he had made it up. The phrase was also used by John Shaft in the 2000 remake of Shaft.

As of late 2010, Giuliani Time has a rating of 85% positive at Rotten Tomatoes (22 fresh, 4 rotten).Giuliani Time is distributed by Cinema Libre Studio. A special election version of the film was released on 2/5/2008.
