Quote Review: The Docks of New York

27 Mar

“Are you goin’ to let me have a good time in my own quiet way, or must I take this place apart?”

For a silent black and white film, The Docks of New York is surprisingly effective at creating a series of similar shots that are every bit as drab and gritty as they are fascinating. At the very least, it’s interesting to look back on one of the earlier works of film and see said style handled well even by today’s standards.
