‘Urbanized’ Trailer – From The Director Of ‘Helvetica’ and ‘Objectified’
Fans of director Gary Hustwit’s previous films Helvetica and Objectified will not be disappointed with the final instalment in his trilogy. A good number of us here at Sound On Sight had a chance to see the film at the Toronto International Film Festival where it premiered. Greg listed it as one of his three favourite films from the festival, saying, “This doc brings closure to Gary Hustwit’s design trilogy in breathtaking fashion. Moving from the methodic to the reductive, national to international, personal to impersonal- Hustwit provides a truly human face to the ever-demanding challenges of urban planning in today’s modern metropolises – a must-see”.
Meanwhile Dave Robson had this to say:
“I expect that fans of director Gary Hustwit’s previous films Helvetica and Objectified are already making plans to see his latest work. They won’t be disappointed. The audience at Friday’s screening certainly wasn’t. Observing the sea of people armed with library books, copies of The New Yorker, and NPR on iPods, Hustwit remarked that the output of Toronto’s creative community had been brought to a halt. To everyone else, then: the object of this review is to convince you that Urbanized is a witty, informed, and essential examination of one of the world’s most vital issues”.
