Dark Water's Roosevelt Island Apartment Tour

In his review of the new movie Dark Water, Roger Ebert describes the arrival of Jennifer Connelly's character at an apartment for rent on Roosevelt Island:

The entrance hall is dark and dank. The superintendent lurks in his cubicle like a poisonous toad. The elevator seems programmed to devour little girls or their mothers. The rooms are dark and dank. Murray talks optimistically about a new coat of paint, and when he fails to find the second bedroom he instantly redefines the living room as "dual-use."... It's just that, well, that stain in the ceiling seems sort of malevolent and alive, as if it were eating up the apartment and will eat them, too. And a trip upstairs reveals unspeakable horrors.
The realism of special effects these days continues to impress.
