Undercity (mini-review)

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, Undercity 2010Andrew WonderSteve Duncan Undercity(2010)

“Undercity” is the first of two documentaries we recently found online and hope the beginning of a trend in quality, while short, documentary filmmaking. The documentary is not light on content while filmmaker Andrew Wonder and our guide Steve Duncan takes us through places in New York we’d probably never be able to see. Both members of the crew risk life and limb and show us a near-lost piece of underground history.

As mentioned above, the documentary is short, but it really does capture one’s attention and holds on the entire length of the project. The project really makes us wonder how many other interesting places are hidden from view or blocked off from access in New York and what fascinating treasures they contain. The fact that the documentary ends high atop New York is both ironic and poetic in a way that really makes this documentary stand out for us.

All that information and content held within and we haven’t even mentioned that Steve Duncan is one cool dude.

Check out the full documentary below!
