well, it’s definitely a television production from 1979
I didn’t like this movie and that makes me feel like an absolute monster—and it’s probably not fair—I can’t think of what I could watch right now, feel 100% invested in, and enjoy. I think my main problem with the movie was how heavily it indulges in nostalgia for a time when people were apparently more human, before all the distractions and occlusions of the contemporary age. The slideshow sequences of historical context and the brief windows into the world…
My first Criterion!
There’s so much to love about this movie. “Got to Be Real” makes me cry happy tears now. Every time I watch it I connect with something new. The outtakes on this Criterion edition are incredible, it’s amazing to get to spend more time with these incredible people who we already know and love.
