Some reviews of ‘Urbanized’:
‘Urbanized is a brave and timely movie that manages to strike almost exactly the right tone. The more people who see this movie the better. And the more politicians who see it – and are persuaded to look beyond the vested interests in front of them – the more powerful a tool Urbanized will be.’ The Guardian
‘A fascinating, idea-packed new documentary. Even viewers with deep knowledge of modern urban planning are likely to learn something from the carefully selected images and thoughtful interviews.’ The New York Times
