The Gods of Times Square

Religious zealots roam the streets of the former riveria of free speech as Times Square decends into a Giuliani slashed Disney hell. The Gods of Times Square, Richard Sandler's first feature documentary, shot between 1993 and 1998, documents the religious fanatics, doomsday prophets, drug addicts and marginized street folks before, and during, the grotesque process of Disneyfication.

WHY WE CHOSE THIS FILM:

This is the first Richard Sandler film we picked up, and we just love his work. This is New York gritty told through an eye that fascinates, and makes this essential documentary cinema.
