Urbanized, A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit

“A fascinating, idea-packed new documentary. Even viewers with deep knowledge of modern urban planning are likely to learn something from the carefully selected images and thoughtful interviews. It is worth venturing out of your room, climbing on your bike or boarding a low-emissions bus and fighting your way through a crowd to see.”

— A. O. Scott, Film Critic, The New York Times
