Critic Reviews for Slaves of New York

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

The first thing I feel is a genuine dislike for the people in this film... I dislike them because they are stupid and they have occupied my time with boring conversation. It is more than that. They are not simply stupid. They value stupidity.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…

Ivory observes these youthful shenanigans with a notably engaged sympathy.

Downright odd -- and not in a good way.

September 4, 2004 | Rating: 2/5

"each reel seems to last about a week"
