Critics Consensus

A glimpse of local government at work that's as patiently observant as it is engrossing, City Hall adds another insightful gem to master documentarian Frederick Wiseman's filmography.

Critic Reviews for City Hall

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (20)

  • A fastidious, intelligent, and all but encyclopedic as any of [Wiseman's] previous real-world epics.

  • City Hall considers in detail the government's role-and responsibility-in fostering that sense of community, and the connection of that sense to the city's over-all well-being.

  • By the time "City Hall" arrives at its breathtaking final shots, Wiseman has crafted such an advanced case for understanding every aspect of local governance that it leads to the impression that America would be a better place if everyone experienced it.

  • The result is both sober and inspiring: an urban progress report taking into account a plethora of government services, scutinized by Wiseman's patient but unblinking eye.
