Critic Reviews for Stations of the Elevated

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (8)

  • Stations of the Elevated plays like a time capsule, particularly for having no dialogue or plot. It swings to Charles Mingus's hardest bop and evokes a long-gone city, somehow more adult and confrontational even in silence.

  • The film's range of subjects and ideas quickly expands to probe the exhilaration of city life itself.

  • Lumbering, skronking, and wondrously paint-bombed, Manfred Kirchheimer's Stations of the Elevated (1981) is a 45-minute proto-hip-hop bliss-out, a masterpiece of train- and tag-spotting ...

  • All that we see in this beautiful, poetic documentary is nothing less than the birthplace of hip-hop.

  • New York can be a chaotic city, and [Charles] Mingus' music (and personality) a volatile match, but there are tender moments to both the city and the music.

  • Kirchheimer appears more interested in the way the subway interacts with urban life, cutting through neighbourhoods like a scalpel through flesh and how people have taken to the individual subway cars as canvases to educate, provoke, and infuriate.
