Movie Reviews

Essential Time Capsule
ECA | Los Angeles, CA | 12/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Gods of Times Square is essential viewing for anyone interested in New York City and the changes it went through before the new millenium. I've never seen another movie like this. It is casual and conversational but adds up to something much more universal and important. The spiritual dedication of the street preachers and characters is matched by videographer Richard Sandler's tenacity and creativity. It's almost like watching an ethnographic survey of the Times Square area. The beauty and filth are equally represented here and like one of the movie's characters says - "It's all one big whole." Excellent honest work of staggering proportions!"

"Brilliant documentary about pre-corporate, Disney-nified Times Square with vibrant imagery and fascinating interviews with the former hawkers and denizens of 42nd street and Broadway."
