    My girlfriend bought me the DVD for my birthday. It's EXCELLENT - definitely something you all should get your hands on.

    The movie documents homeless people living in the NYC subway tunnels - how they get by, their homes, their personal lives, etc. The entire soundtrack is done by DJ Shadow, which is the perfect music for the dark black and white scenes.

    The DVD shows the making of the movie .. something that is still hard to believe. The guy who made the film had never picked up a video camera before he decided to make the movie. He apparently got the idea when he was hanging out with the dudes in the tunnel. That's what I found odd - that a guy with an apartment in the city would go down to the tunnels day after day to sit and chum around with those stuck in the situation. Anyway, all of the power they used to make the movie was tapped off of main NYC elec. lines that run belowground. Plus, a lot of their homes/shacks in the subway are powered by elec., have make-shift toilets, TVs, rugs, beds, couches ... all things considered, they've set themselves up pretty sweet.

    So, yes: I wholeheartedly suggest you watch this movie.

    Dark Days is a great song, do they have a soundtrack for the movie out? Dj Shadow is excellent, my favorite song is "Midnight In A Perfect World"

    Actually, it's not. The entire movie crew were the dudes living down there, and all of the proceeds from the film went to getting them out of the tunnel and on their feet. It updates the lives of all of the main characters from the documentary, and all but two aren't living on the streets anymore.
