  3. José Neves's rating of the film Daybreak Express

    A film that represents well the virtues of a creative intuition. With 16mm film, a camera, a watchful eye and a constructive editing, is elaborated another symphony of a city, which by its structure originally muted and, simultaneously, articulated with a specific musical score, amazingly condenses the avant-garde experiments of previous decades, from Ruttmann and Vertov to Richter. Sensory cinema of highest level.

  5. El Biffo's rating of the film Daybreak Express

    Jazzy and beautiful. Pennebaker is brilliant.

  6. robin's rating of the film Daybreak Express

    Reminds me of french avantgarde films. Beautiful exploration of framing, color and rhythm through geometric patterns of NY architecture.

  7. Cbarky99's rating of the film Daybreak Express

    Time Capsule of mid-20th New York subway or early example of the possibilities of the music video? Either way this thing's an intimate, immersive little wonder.

  8. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Daybreak Express

    it shows n.y. like it was a virgil wildrich paper monster, a swirling cinematic artefact. 'you saw it, but it never basically existed', like an entity in Meinong's jungle.
