User Reviews

a worthy follow up
4 August 2011 | by greene515See all my reviews

'More American Graffiti' is a worthy follow up to it's predecessor 'American Graffit' Back again for this episodic slice of sixties nostalgia is Paul Le Mat as Drag racer John Milner and his racing exploits and the cute subplot involving the 'Swedish girl'

Bo Hopkin's and Charles Martin Smith's Exploits in Vietnam and Smith's recurring methods to get sent home are hilarious but ultimately tragic.

Ron Howard's marriage which is verging on break up amid the draft burning riots.

the ever likable Candy Clark's exploits as a go-go dancer in San Francisco and her 'Trips' Look out for Harrison Ford as a quick Cameo as a Traffic Cop.

From a technical standpoint 'More American Garffiti' is an interesting film as the film 'experiments' with Aspect Ratio's for instance the Vietnam sequences are 16mm 1.37 : 1 Candy Clarks San Francisco exploits are a mixture of 2.35 : 1 with 'Woodstock' like split screen effects. Ron Howards scenes are 1.85 : 1 it is an admittedly distracting effect but it makes for an interesting viewing.
