A Missing Masterpiece
17 February 2012 | by (Marin County, CA) – See all my reviews

I just want to agree with REDBEARD above -- I was at that same Uniondale Mini-Cinema screening! (and let's raise a glass to that incredible theater, that gave me my entire teen education in cinema), and haven't been able to see POUND since.

However, the GOOD (maybe GREAT) news, is that in May 2012, Criterion is releasing a boxed set with several of Robert Downey, Sr.'s films, including PUTNEY SWOPE and CHAFED ELBOWS (unfortunately, NOT including POUND or GREASER'S PALACE). At least SOME Robert Downey films are going to be out there for a whole new generation (and this older generation) to see.
