As Kent drives along California coast, he recollects recent events in his life: his dropping out of college, also leaving behind his establishment-oriented roommate and his square parents. But above all the suicide of his passive girlfriend Bobbi after he dumped her. He's so filled with guilt he crashes his car, but isn't hurt. He then meets journalist Kristine who is making interviews with college students in America. They sleep together but he wants to move on. He then meets experienced divorcée Julie; they get along well and she finds him a job and a place to live. But Kent's search for a meaning in his life urges him to move on once again. Written by
This long forgotten coming of age drama was briefly available on VHS from Prism and is now almost impossible to find. Produced, written, and directed by Hall Bartlett, Changes treads some familiar territory, but does so delicately and in interesting ways. The film features very little dialogue, with the songs of Tim Buckley dominating the soundtrack, which also features Judy Collins' pop version of Both Sides Now. Prism's tape looks great, but is sadly pan and scanned, leaving Richard Moore's gorgeous Panavision photography in less than optimal condition. Nonetheless, this is well worth a look, especially for those with a particular interest in the era, or for those who attended the Berkeley campus, where early scenes were shot. Get a look at how the Campanile, Sather Gate, and Lower Sproul looked in the late 60s! They haven't changed much since then...
