Memorable Film
8 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was just looking at a book about quilts, ran into the term 'crazy quilt', and for the umpteenth time, recalled seeing this film some four decades ago. I've also read the book, "The Illusionless Man" by Allen Wheelis, upon which it was based. I would very much like to view it again, to see "how it holds up". One theme that I got out of it was the danger of being overly analytical, yet wanting to have fun, live in the moment. One image that definitely remains (if significantly morphed over time) is the house--what a joint that is, or was. An intriguing factoid is Korty's alleged political stance (waay to the right). I'm wondering how this may have been expressed in this early work. As other reviewers have stated, this film left a large if blurry mark on my psyche as well.... Let's get to see it!
