  • It may be difficult to fully comprehend all the cacophony, but the vibrant hues and collection of characters still make for an interesting sensory experience.

  • Three hours ... some of it brilliant, some tedious ...

  • It may take a village to understand what's going on here, and maybe that's [Wiseman's] point.

  • Wiseman's work takes on the moral density of a Dickens novel. It's smart enough to find the moments that show our civilization, as big and complex and troubled as it is, is still worth fighting for.

  • At just over three hours, the nontraditional storytelling of "In Jackson Heights" is a challenge. Still, Wiseman's fly-on-the-wall conceit is immersive, even comforting.

    Interesting to see what has changed in the old neighborhood since leaving 40 some years ago. Looks nothing like the place where I played LL baseball and went to HS but still is noisy and crowded. There is such a colorful vibrancy to JH that Wiseman focusing on throughout this lengthy peep into the heartbeat of this diverse slice of Queens. A must watch for those xeneophobic Republicans!
