Echoes of Silence1965

  • 3.8
Peter Emmanuel Goldman's rarely screened debut, an underappreciated landmark of the New American Cinema, chronicles the lives of twenty-somethings adrift in New York City, finding tremendous pathos in the smallest moments: a furtive glance across a museum gallery, girls putting on makeup, a stroll beneath the pulsing lights of Times Square marquees. Composed with a lo-fi purity and bereft of diegetic sound, its shadowy images of youthful flaneurs are paired with evocatively hand-painted title cards and a dynamic soundtrack drawn from the artist's LPs that, when combined, conjure up a ballad of dependency like none other.

A wonderful Beatnik Silent Film. No talking, but a great score and sweet hand-drawn intertitles. Tons of great verite street footage of NYC 1965, with old movie houses, Times Sq., Cinema Row 42nd Street, drunks and hookers. This is the kind of thing that makes my Fandor subscription worthwhile :-))

WOW! What a trip back to youth. Beautiful
