Unjustly neglected
27 April 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

A very fine, forgotten movie that deserves a great deal better than the total obscurity that has shrouded it over the years. After being shown on late-night TV in the early Seventies, Andy just dropped out of sight. And that's a shame. This is really an outstanding movie, filmed on location in New York and featuring excellent performances, particularly by Alden in the lead role. This is what used to be called an "art" movie, receiving limited distribution but often far outclassing the movies of the era. In some respects this film was better than "Charly," the Cliff Robertson film that explored mental retardation several years later.
