  • Summary: As it chronicles the life and times of street photographer and former cabbie Matt Weber, More Than The Rainbow becomes a vibrant conversation about the photographic medium, artistic expression and New York City. Set to wonderful jazz and drenched in evocative images, the film is bittersweet and nostalgic from beginning to end. There is no telling how many stories Weber has attempted to capture since he first started taking pictures out of the window of the cab he used to drive. But his quarter century-plus devotion to candidly depicting the lives of his fellow New Yorkers, many of them from the fringes of society, has yielded a remarkable document of a New York that most of us will never experience.

    The film's segments move seamlessly from one topic to the next with the unselfconscious ease of a good dinner party.

    On treks through the city, camera in hand, Weber's expertise, tenderness, and taste for the absurd become clear. Wechsler runs with it, interspersing decades of Weber's often gritty photographs with expert cinematography.

    [A] loosely structured, always informative, sometimes illuminating portrait docu.

    Mr. Wechsler’s film might be loose to a fault, but Mr. Weber’s work yields its share of gratifying, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it New York moments.
