AT the beginning of the film when the two were sitting in the car listening to the conversation from upstairs, you hear an electronic siren in the background. They were not invented until 1964. A few moments later, you see a NYPD patrol car race by with its red light turning. It should have had red and white alternating lights but the siren was correct for the period then. See more »

The movie recreated the 1950s NY in an amazing way. Great cast who portrayed their roles with authenticity. It had a nice leisurely pace but held on to the suspense till the end. Saw during the NYFF premier ... it was a great choice to end the 2019 festival. Would recommend the movie for anyone who can appreciate good meaningful cinema.
Motherless Brooklyn is the kind of movie Hollywood almost never makes anymore, and a complexly conceived, robust evocation of a bygone era of New York that speaks to our present moment.
