“Genuinely avant-garde, this film was made on consecutive days with ‘Down the Hudson,’ with vastly different results. Manhattan appears from a moving boat, but the time-lapse mechanism misregistered, creating a fuzzy, impressionistic effect. Add in the stuttering pixilation and this incredible voyage anticipates underground cinema works of the 1960s–1970s.” —Bruce Posner
