"The Story of a Three Day Pass"
Director: Melvin Van Peebles
Mr. Peebles' French New Wave feature debut. A playful, emotional, angry, insightful black and white romance. With a mixed cool jazzy/resonate symphonic score, creative editing, pointed observation, and imaginative, varied, and skillful camerawork clearly "borrowed" by many filmmakers who followed him. A masterpiece from a rebel. We need another one like him NOW.
