EARLY PRAISE FOR THE MANHATTAN FRONT

"Cathy Lee Crane is one the most interesting filmmakers in the tradition of the avant-garde working in the United States today. Her films succeed in developing within a feminist perspective a very personal poetics. This film's narrative complexity is based on the absurdities of the world as it is. The pastiche of early color techniques is the most successful I have ever seen. I would say this is Crane's masterpiece."

– NOËL BURCH, co-director with Thom Anderson of Red Hollywood and co-director with Allan Sekula of The Forgotten Space

"She is our feminist Godard"

– BARBARA HAMMER, lesbian film pioneer
