Who I'd like to meet:..Jason Buchanan for the All Movie Guide:..
For anyone who ever listened to the radio and pondered just how mainstream so-called "alternative" music has become in recent years, filmmakers Frank Pavich and Steven Scarlata offer an illuminating look at the New York City hardcore scene. Created by music fans for music fans, this documentary focuses on a style of music that you can't hear on MTV or any popular radio stations. This isn't your typical, cursory look at slam-dancing and stage-diving, but an opportunity to hear from the folks who have dedicated their entire existence to making the most confrontational music ever recorded. Come as you are, but leave your expectations behind because N.Y.H.C. is everything you'd never expect it to be.
..Shawn Macomber for Outburn Magazine:..
Yet it is still the haunting interviews with awkward fans and musicians so desperate to belong that form the real heart of NYHC. Pavich was wise enough to recognize this humanity and pathos. Here's hoping this DVD release finally gets the film the attention it so richly deserves.
..Georgette for BlogCritics Magazine:..
N.Y.H.C. doesn't pretty it up. It never was pretty, anyway.
..Peter Martin for Cinematical.com:..
Kudos to distributor Halo-8 Entertainment for unleashing Frank Pavich's N.Y.H.C. The title refers to the mid-90s New York hardcore music scene; the film itself was originally released on an underground VHS tape in 1999. Digitally remastered, the doc looks smashing, and, even if you're not a fan of the music, it's a terrific, well-told, engaging story.
As a portrait of a specific time and place, NYHC is an excellent piece of work and the music is - as it should be - the focus.
..Leroy Gumption for Viceland.com:..
If you can't take the live footage for the incredible document of a crucial moment in New York musical and social history that it is without chuckling over the subtitles they put in for Rick ta Life's mushmouth, you're out. Seriously, fuck off back to the Hills.
..Madison Carter for PopSyndicate.com:..
The most interesting extra though are new interviews with many of the players from the documentary. Seeing these guys thirteen years later shows that some have moved on from the scene, either literally or stylistically. Some still stick to tried and true. The entirety of these new interviews equal, if not surpass the actual doc in terms of length.
..R.O.D. for Fluo Glacial:..
Et puis, Frank Pavich a eu la bonne idée de ressortir la VHS en Double DVD, avec sous-titrage en plein de langues (dont français) et une tonne de bonus.
..David Carter for Film Fanaddict Magazine:..
The film has no agenda; there is no narrative progression from beginning to end. We leave the bands in the film in essentially the same state we found them in. In this regard it is clear to see how NYHC has become an underground classic; it crystallizes a singular moment in time completely rather attempting to document a transitional phase... It is one of the few music documentaries that doesn’t turn into a promotional video or go too far into “Behind the Music” melodrama territory. If you are a hardcore fan, though, or even just a music lover you can’t pass this set up.
..David Greenberg for IndieTalk.com:..
With exceptionally well shot material from the underground spots where the bands played and insightful, candid interviews, N.Y.H.C. is a testament to the passion and fire and feelings of these people and this lifestyle.
