Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Two Takes

Loading...
Take one: Director William Greaves presides over a beleaguered film crew in New York's Central Park, leaving them to try to figure out what kind of movie they're making. A couple enacts a breakup scenario over and over, a documentary crew films a crew filming the crew, locals wander casually into the frame: the project defies easy description. Yet this wildly innovative sixties counterculture landmark remains one of the most tightly focused and insightful movies ever made about making movies.; Take 2 1/2: Sequel to Symbiopsychotaxiplasm take one. 35 years later, Greaves brings back to Central Park those actors and some of the original crew (plus others) to film a reunion of the characters Alice and Freddie.

I'm Not Rappaport

Loading...
Eighty-one year old Nat Moyer is a compulsive and fanciful talker, a feisty philosopher, and a troublemaker given to assuming personalities. His daily companion on a bench in New York's Central Park is Midge Carter, a half-blind apartment house superintendent. Midge's approach to life is realistic and down-to-earth, making him the perfect foil for Nat. With vaudevillian flair, these appealing oldsters outrageously take on the world and its multiple threats--drug dealers and muggers, enlightened children, forced retirement, and the spector of the old folks' home.
