THE STRANGE ONE (1957)
Monday 21 6:30pm
" The best ensemble work since Citizen Kane "
Lawrence Olivier, introducing the film at the preview in London in 1957
SOMETHING WILD (1961)
"Something Wild is vibrant, beautiful, and the contrast between vitality and alienation is perhaps the defining feature of this marvelously strange movie. This film is less a crime drama or even a story of psychological trauma than a philosophical inquiry into the state of the modern urban soul."
A.O. Scott New York Times 2007
" A neglected masterwork from the method school and Actors Studio alum Jack Garfein. "
Fim Quarterly 2007
