On The Criterion Channel May 6th. Trailer above.

he's a good example, in fact a slightly influential example (in movieland), of the materials needed for captivating drama existing right in life. he influenced who? Kaufman most noticeably, but also ARP, in terms of kindred spirits, those I know for sure, and Baumbach theoretically. plus, he was the killer in Last Action Hero

it's too bad that The Wife isn't being included. and his other two I've never seen. what sort of package will he be a part of on the criterion channel, I'm not sure, although I see the list, and Minnie and Moskowitz is coming too, oh good, a selection of Josephine Decker, that's nice, Dennis Hopper's The Last Movie, cool, plus Lois Weber selections

George Romero's The Amusement Park (1973) is coming to Shudder June 8th

Recently discovered and restored 46 years after its completion by the George A. Romero Foundation and produced by Suzanne Desrocher-Romero, The Amusement Park stars Martin’s Lincoln Maazel as an elderly man who finds himself disoriented and increasingly isolated as the pains, tragedies and humiliations of aging in America are manifested through roller coasters and chaotic crowds. Commissioned by the Lutheran Society, the film is perhaps Romero’s wildest and most imaginative movie, an allegory about the nightmarish realities of growing older, and is an alluring snapshot of the filmmaker’s early artistic capacity and style and would go on to inform his ensuing filmography. The “lost” film was restored in 4k by IndieCollect in New York City.
