A rich, ambitious exploration of the ways our surroundings are shaped, and the subtler ways they shape us.

The film ticks off a fascinating blend of dos and don'ts for a century that will see even greater numbers of people packing into urban centers.

At the very least, Hustwit drives home the urgency of radically rethinking city life as the world population tops seven billion.

"Urbanized" is a fast zoom out to the big picture: The colonies or hives in which we arrange, display and support our lives.

Bill Weber
Slant Magazine

A digestible, globetrotting primer on the future of cities filled with bracingly plainspoken professionals and practical optimism, despite a few sketchily drawn crises.

The documentary at times is weighed down by statistics and shop talk, but Luke Geissbuhler's smartly rendered cinematography saves the day.

Even viewers with deep knowledge of modern urban planning are likely to learn something from the carefully selected images and thoughtful interviews that make up most of "Urbanized."

A lively if schematic overview of city planning at its best and not so best.

Maybe this is the best title they could muster -- it's a stinker, depressing or, depending on your mood, vaguely danceable. Fortunately, the documentary itself is grand.

Hustwit gorgeously enhances the talking-head commentaries of architects, policymakers, and other progressive thinkers with spatially clean, static-camera compositions -- this time in God's-eye panoramas of earth's ant farm.
