"[Danhier] illuminates a hectic and fascinating place and time, bringing it back to life and tracing its continuing influence."New York Times "[I]t's exciting to see clips from these often-hard-to-find films, and it's rare for a rise-and-fall-of-an-artistic-movement story to have a second act, as BLANK CITY does." -- Grade: B+A.V. Club "[A] terrific documentary about a 30-year-old Lower Manhattan micro-niche. BLANK CITY mixes present-day interviews with a liberal sampling of 'period' imagery, including clips from actual No Wave films..."Film Comment "Danhier evocatively recaptures this gritty period of anything-goes creativity in the thorough, decidedly non-romanticized documentary BLANK CITY."Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "The documentary does a formidable job of sampling countless films now mostly forgotten....It gathers many of the artists, now middle-aged, to recollect a time of heedless youth."Chicago Sun-Times0.2364514

"...Furlong and Dafoe work well together, and they are joined by a strong and, in some cases, surprising supporting cast....It is this cast that lends integrity to such sensitive material..."Box Office "...Buscemi's ANIMAL FACTORY is distinguished from top to bottom with actors as intensely committed as he is....Maintained throughout is an almost eerie atmosphere of tension barely contained by stoicism, even a kind of grace..."Los Angeles Times "...As a director Steve Buscemi inspires actors to do some of their most finely shaded work....Willem Dafoe steals the picture with his comic timing..."New York Times "...Buscemi displays a pinpoint humanity, reminiscent of Jonathan Demme, that lays bare the inner turmoil of everyone on screen..."Entertainment Weekly "...Gripping....Buscemi honours Bunker's tale by lensing with an assured, unfussy touch..."Total Film "...Buscemi's bravely ambitious film scores high on integrity and earnest complexity....ANIMAL FACTORY is a film of memorable moments..."Sight and Sound0.2026726
