The Docks of New York Reviews

Leo Goldsmith
Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Von Sternberg is a director of situations, not of suspense -- it is his mastery of the subtle eye-line interplay of silent cinema, his command of mise-en-scene and mood, that makes the love between these characters credible.

In other hands, this could have been a pretty ordinary dimestore romance, but Sternberg gives it depth and, as a result, greatness.

In a way lost to contemporary social-work movies, von Sternberg's unsentimental poetic realism ennobles his lower-class protagonists through beauty. Classic.

It's a corking program picture, thanks to George Bancroft, a good story and Julian Johnson's titles.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Seedy waterfront silent melodrama that sizzles with a smoky atmosphere.

Parallax View

... a turn-of-the-century bowery answer to Sunrise, with a romantic idealism fighting its way out of hard-scrabble lives and resigned characters of the waterfront culture.

It fulfills their requirements, somewhat obscure to this reviewer, of rhythm, plasticity and unity. In simpler and more popular terms, it seems to be exceptionally good motion picture entertainment.

visually evocative and narratively intriguing, such that even its generally terrible ending can't quite undermine the overall sense that you have just seen something profoundly of its time and ahead of it

Sternberg suppresses direct emotional appeal to concentrate on something infinitely fine: a series of minute, discrete moral discoveries and philosophical realignments among his characters.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The Docks of New York is really a director's and cinematographer's picture if ever there was one and on that account it's nothing less than masterly.
