“Made over a period of six years, “The Street: A Film With the Homeless” closely follows the occasional ups and all-too-frequent downs in the lives of three homeless men in Montreal. First-time director Daniel Cross makes no attempt to hide his sympathy for the characters he’s portraying, and, in spite of low-tech production values, pic has a raw, visceral force that draws in the viewer; the main characters, a desperate group, are never less than riveting”
