  1. Charlie's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    Interesting. The city is so full of advertising that I felt overwhelmed. I enjoyed watching this.

  2. darioscha's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    Un corto que se prestaba al juego y exploración de la forma y la luz, pero sólo queda en la huella de su registro.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    Désormais un peu daté ! www.cinefiches.com

  4. Thomas's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    Colourful, meditatively engaging short.

  5. SpacePirate's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    Nice photography, awful soundtrack. Not much else to say about this one. Kudos to MUBI for unearthing it.

  6. Thomas's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    A collection of old neon lights for advertising in one short reel. Does not overstay its welcome.

  7. m00njaguar's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    Who knew that neon signs reflected in puddles could be so lovely? An eye dazzling collage of colors and lights from a long -lost New York.

  9. mpho3's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    They say the neon lights are bright on broadway They say there's always magic in the air But when you're walkin' down that street And you ain't had enough to eat The glitter rubs right off and you're nowhere

  12. Tibulle85's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    D'une beauté sans nom avec ces enseignes nocturnes qui, de parures mercantiles, deviennent sous l’œil du photographe autant d'entités féériques et vivantes. Une très belle utilisation de la musique. Et cette transition vers le matin...Ce même espace qui, la nuit, se métamorphose, révèle une dimension ignorée, m'a fait penser à l'apparition de la ville des esprits à la tombée de la nuit au début du Voyage de Chihiro.

  13. Samuel Wells's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    The opening cue cards of the film are a moment of brilliant wit. If nothing else, watch this minute of humor. After that, the film loses its drive. The actual shots of Time Square are still whimsical and show it in a new light (pun intended). I wish more of the wit was maintained, it would have kept investment in the film much higher and would have given insight in how the director saw this everyday oddity (for him).

  15. turnerBroadcast p3Dr0's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    First rule of Las Vegas. Everyone there is either a sheep, or a wolf. First axiom, street signs are bright shiny things. First rule of New York. Don't make eye contact. First axiom, Times Square is a nexus of Space and Time .. it's good luck to ring in the new year there. Ancient Indian Burial Ground considerations aside. This film shines in the midnight sun. Manhattan as timeless as Times Square in the sixties

  17. Levi Miah's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    This is almost a precursor to the 2001 star gate sequence in it's use of music combined with the visual pacing. A close-up study of both light and shadow, travelling into a fiery new dawn.

  18. Nieluj Nilehtac's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    Voyage au pays des lumières où tout plein de petits monstres s'agitent, aussitôt disparus, le soleil venu.

  19. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    Bad it's too short, what a beauty.

  21. panagiotatos's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    7/10, visually stunning, ominous music, a hint about the marketing industry.

  22. dmol's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    What an eye for atmosphere and colour, Mr Klein!

  23. Neil troost's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    that was fun thank you. not too long (2 hours of that would have been painful) but a neat fresh look at something we see every day. isnt that one of the roles of film? classic new york. love it.

  24. dAlton Anthony's rating of the film Broadway by Light

    I'd love to hear more about the cinematic technology of the late fifties. If anyone knows about film stock and processing, let me know. All I could gather from the short was that it was filmed in "Eastman Color." Texture and color saturation, the tone and aura of a film, help define certain periods in the collective conscious. Klein's meditation makes a powerful statement about the late fifties. Simply gorgeous.
