  1. Sarah Fonseca's rating of the film Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

    Was anticipating a more thorough, life-to-death biography of Jane Jacobs and less about her decades-long fight against Robert Moses, who effectively received equal (if not more) narrative time.

  2. Federico Boswarlos's rating of the film Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

  3. msmichel's rating of the film Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

    Wonderful documentary looking at the legacy of Jane Jacobs and her impact not just on her historic activist battles in New York with foe Robert Moses but on her lasting influence on NYC and a generation or two of city planners. Interesting that Moses' vision seems to be the vision of urban planning in currently developing international city landscapes when the model has already failed.

  4. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

    Not so much a documentary about the conflict between Jacobs and Moses in the 1950s but a dramatization of Jacobs' ideas and the effects of 'progressive' Moses/Le Corbusier architecture on a global scale.
