Beautiful + real = real beautiful
19 September 2003 | by (Cambridge MA) – See all my reviews

This 1979 documentary is one of my all time favorites. The structure is as simple as they come. Footage of the various New York subways which run on elevated tracks is set to the music of Charles Mingus (with a little Duke Ellington thrown in for good measure)

It's as if you are riding the rails in 79' while listening to Mingus on your walk man. Eye candy up the wazzoo from graffiti to Nylon paisley shirts but there are no characters per say; except for the subways themselves.
