A showcase for many conflicting viewpoints.
Concerned inhabitants of the global village would do well to track this one down.
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.
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."
Once again, Hustwit has made an invigorating film out of a subject with no flesh or blood, and yet speaks so much to the way we live.
A good (and great-looking) overview of urban planning
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.
A digestible, globetrotting primer on the future of cities filled with bracingly plainspoken professionals and practical optimism, despite a few sketchily drawn crises.
A lively if schematic overview of city planning at its best and not so best.
