Crop And Save
Harlan County U.S.A. (1976)
"May the good lord take a liking to you."
The Quotes section of this site won't allow this title-quote from an unknown old man who appears briefly near the start of this film. This might help explain why there are no quotes listed for this documentary. The Supplements on this DVD are very good. However, the commentary track with Kopple and Baker does not identify this old man, and it sounds a bit dis-connected, as if they were not watching their film as they commented about it. It can be virtually impossible to identify a by-stander who utters such a memorable quote from a thirty-eight year old documentary. I believe this man might have been thanking someone for a cash donation for the striking miners.
Torrents of Spring (1989)
See For Yourself
I'd like to read what women think of this feature. Every review I've seen so far completely misses the point including Roger Ebert's dead-wrong pan. Courage of conviction and lack of it bridge to each other here, though at different levels for different characters for very different reasons. The hues are gorgeous, and the music marries nicely. Experience this one your self. I've known very few people who have made similar choices in there lives and lived with those choices, so I'm not surprised that so many reviewers can't understand these characters. I would have stopped at "...music marries nicely..." but there is a ten line minimum.
The Second Coming of Suzanne (1974)
Sondra Locke's Description of TSCOS
These quotes are from The Good, The Bad & The Very Ugly; A Hollywood Journey, by Sondra Locke (1997). "The script of his (Barry's) upcoming film had been inspired by Leonard Cohen's haunting song "Suzanne" and was the story of three men- an artist and a director and a newsman- who all love Suzanne and are all changed in some way by her innate goodness and purity. The screenplay was quirky and dreamlike..." (123).
Locke was brave to take part in this abstract vision, and to risk possible injury in the shots captured from a helicopter. She shared her beautiful physical form with the world in two shots with Paul Sand, and these are very special now considering what Locke weathered later on in her personal life.
Instead of simply complaining, do a little research now and then.
