I saw this film when it first came out and I thought it was powerful but now looking back, Richard Sandler's film has grown in importance because post-Sept. 11, under a billionaire mayor and a multi-millionaire socialite city planner came a tsunami of community crushing development mostly all for the mega rich and a kind of shopping mall chain story retail explosion city wide punctuated with banks on every street corner that has robbed NYC of it's soul and originality.

There are grey tones. Do I appreciate feeling safe walking down the streets of Time Square and elsewhere in the city? Yes!!! What Richard Sandler shows us is the make-over and take-over by corporations and I understand some of the positives in terms of a cleaner, safer more pleasant city but ultimately what I didn't realize at the time was that film maker had his pulse on was the end of a kind of dynamism and edginess that made NYC what it is. It seems now that we can't have the best of both worlds and my neighborhood (East Village/Bowery/Lower East Side now looks like a bad xerox of midtown even resembling Time Square)thanks to mayor Mike Bloomberg.

Now we have generic chains stores through out the city and every neighborhood looks the same. Only bars, banks and Starbuck like chain stores can afford this "new city" that under the Bloomberg administration brought sky piercing luxury condos and hotels mostly all for the mega rich reflecting a history destroyed and communities no longer welcome.

Richard Sandler "got it" before any of us and he does leave a lot of grey tones for you to come to your on conclusions. Well done. Time to do another masterful documentary..."Welcome to the "new" hideous New York.

The Gods of Times Square is essential viewing for anyone interested in New York City and the changes it went through before the new millenium. I've never seen another movie like this. It is casual and conversational but adds up to something much more universal and important. The spiritual dedication of the street preachers and characters is matched by videographer Richard Sandler's tenacity and creativity. It's almost like watching an ethnographic survey of the Times Square area. The beauty and filth are equally represented here and like one of the movie's characters says - "It's all one big whole." Excellent honest work of staggering proportions!

Brilliant documentary about pre-corporate, Disney-nified Times Square with vibrant imagery and fascinating interviews with the former hawkers and denizens of 42nd street and Broadway.
