Leonard Bernstein: Larger Than Life
- Excerpt: A pianist, a teacher, a composer, a lover of people and one of the world’s all-time best conductors, Bernstein “had charisma by the bucketload.”
- Excerpt: Night Moves’ peculiar mystique is generated by the permeating feeling that it isn’t about what it seems to be about. Despite the genre games, it’s also like most of Penn’s films a work of reportage recording the psychic tenor of the moment, contemplating people who find themselves at once exemplifying their times whilst also being trapped outside of them.
- Excerpt: While the car chase at the beginning of Robbery deserves acclaim, the opening set-up is notable as well.
