Novice filmmaker Marc Singer lived in the bowels of a midtown Manhattan railway station for two years to shoot this harrowing account of the day-to-day existence of the homeless.

Marc Singer's feted 2000 doc about a Manhattan subterranean community has lost none of its power since its debut.
The documentary feels like it surreptitiously removed another barrier to more direct relations between those behind and in front of the camera.
Dark Days remains a vital documentation and representation of a continuing, widespread problem, the resonance of which is heightened in these fragile, economically troubled times.
As a chronicle of midnight and dawn in the great human day, Dark Days ranks among the most moral of films.
An unromanticized and fascinating glimpse of the lives of a community of homeless people surviving in a train tunnel in Manhattan.
A superb film that, unlike so many others, will make you realise the value of what you have.
a gripping collection of vignettes that show a side of life most of us will hopefully never have to witness first-hand.
Dark Days attacks our wastefulness and insensitivity to the underprivileged, and is enhanced by the use of humour and understatement.
