★★★☆ “‘Restless City’ is a Harlem with dreamy, vivid backdrop,” by Wesley Morris, The Boston Globe
“The thrust and power of the film lies in its poetic imagery, in the way [director] Dosunmu and cinematographer Bradford Young use light and composition to make almost every frame (breathtaking profiles; close-ups on faces and feet; slo-mo moped rides down city streets) stunning.” – The Village Voice
“‘Restless City’ is tumescent with atmosphere… [Dosunmu's] film has the alluring thinness of old French movies and the throbbing vividness of oldish American ones.” —Wesley Morris, The Boston Globe
“Visually stirring and emotionally evocative with touching characters and terrific performances.” – Kristofer Jenson, Dig Boston
