  1. FISCHER's rating of the film City of Hope

    Une suite d'événements motivés par des rapports de cause à effets. Une oeuvre sobre qui fait regretter que les autres films de Sayles soient en partie inconnus... www.cinefiches.com

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film City of Hope

    An excellent urban drama by Sayles! With gorgeously fluid tracking shots, he manages to interlace the lives of more than a dozen characters and deliver a highly intelligent and moving essay on the contingent outcomes of urban modernity. Coupled to carefully processed social criticism of corruption he orchestrates a genuine drama about human fallibility. V.Spano and T. Lo Bianco stand out but it is an ensemble piece.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film City of Hope

    I think John Sayles set out to make every single type of movie out there. This one has his troupe of excellent actors and Spano rises to the occasion.

  4. Patrick Humphreys's rating of the film City of Hope

    I can't believe this isn't available on dvd.
