This is the world discovered and illuminated by gonzo documentarian Marc Singer, who spent a good part of two years living with and chronicling the lives of a half-dozen tunnel dwellers for his remarkable first film, Dark Days

The virtue of Dark Days is that it provides a forum for its subjects, who turn out to be funny, charming, acerbic, annoying, callous, kind and, ultimately, fully human. The movie's other quality -- a dewy romanticism -- is both an asset and a detriment.

The lives of these people inside their shacks are full of surprises as well as grim confirmations, but the things we don't know about them also significantly shape our experience of the film.

Singer deserves credit for attempting to put a human face on such tragic circumstances, but he appears to have gotten so close to his main subjects that he seems unwilling to make them, or their desperate situation, look too bad.

Some of these hardy souls have lived this way for years, decades even, and they've lived not just to tell the tale but to suggest that they've created a viable alternative existence. At times, Dark Days almost makes you envious. But only almost.

Marc Singer's documentary Dark Days absolutely blew me away. It takes the viewer on a thoroughly engrossing journey to the heart of darkness.

Singer's grainy... photography lends the film the evocative aura of something that has been unearthed, while the spare, haunting soundtrack by DJ Shadow perfectly captures the sense of otherworldliness that pervades this remarkable film.

As we come to know the residents, we find their lives, and yearning for home and safety, as tragic, funny, and involving as anything in a scripted movie.

A fascinating, beautifully photographed portrait of a vanished community: a group of homeless people who built a shanty town in the train tunnels beneath Penn Station.

Singer's stark black-and-white photography renders their world with the abstract horror of a German expressionist film, yet he's equally skilled at coaxing the grim personal stories of life underground.

It's hard not to get caught up in these people's lives, or to be impressed by their resiliency.

Singer captures intimate moments in the lives of his subterranean protagonists in their strange, crepuscular world.

Times [UK]

A portrait of the homeless community of "mole people" who lived in sections of disused underground tunnels in New York, this is a singularly powerful account of the lives of the dispossessed and desperate.

Designed neither to warm your heart nor shelter you in the comfort of liberal guilt, the movie does what so many style-conscious, "subjective" documentaries have long forgotten how to do. It shows you a world, and stays the hell out of it.

Marc Singer's camera hustles and chills along with them all, documenting their lives in black-and-white as high-contrast as the days above to the nights below.

This is London

A black-and-white hymn to the energy of the dispossessed, made in the late 1990s, but still horribly relevant.
