Pioneering crime drama, brilliantly made, with rich acting, stunning photography of NY slums, creative visual style. Full Review
Classic Film and Television
Revelling in the cinema's power to set a vast scene in a single glance, Walsh gives the spare, schematic story a novelistic amplitude.
[Regeneration is] distinguished by a remarkable approach to physical casting, a robust treatment of violent action, and a sheer narrative pace to shame contemporary ponderousness. Full Review
...Filmed in gritty Bowery locales and exploring the causes of crime in convincing detail...
Rating: 4/4 -- An astonishingly impressive and durable movie for its years. Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- It's an extraordinary film. Full Review
Filmed on location in the Bowery of New York before World War I, this silent feature is the first gangster movie about a hoodlum who is turned away from a life of crime by a beautiful social worker. Also includes a short called "The Police Force of New York City" filmed in 1910 and a newly recorded musical score, composed and performed by Philip Carli.
Filmed on location in the slums of the lower east side, "Regeneration" follows the story of a tough-as-nails orphan as he grows up alone on the unforgiving streets of New York City. Having spent his formative years running with a dangerous crowd of thugs and petty thieves, he becomes a prosperous, full-time criminal by the tender age of 25. But through the inspiration of Mamie Rose, the kind-hearted matron of a downtown mission, he eventually realizes that it's not too late for him to regain his lost innocence.
- REGENERATION was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 2000.
