"No one in decades has shown Manhattan on screen with the realism, intensity, or shocking beauty...It's just a whisper away from greatness'

~Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

"Depicts a New York landscape all the more recognized for having never before been captured on film with such dismaying honesty."

~Amy Taubin, Village Voice

"James Callanan's lensing and Gato Barbieri's score should also be credited for their roles in establishing the city's ambiance...its determined grip on the pulse of the city."

~Fred Lombardi, Variety

Top Ten list. "A must see".

~Andrew Sarris, NY Observer

"Extraordinary in its visual portrayal of New York City." 
~John Anderson, New York Newsday

"'Manhattan by Numbers" is quite beautiful. It evokes a state of mind and a sense of place."

~Vincent Canby, New York Times

"Naderi's camera turns even mundane locales into magical spaces of light and color. The film's stunningly pristine cinematography is arguably at odds with Naderi's frank realism."

~John Miller-Monzon, The Motion Picture Guide Annual.
