Armond White's greatest review! One of the best... ever.

Rethinking the 1970s.

Phone Booth should have caused a sensation. Phone Booth has been unfairly dismissed.

The lackluster reception of Phone Booth overshadows the new documentary A Decade Under the Influence, which celebrates the legacy of the 70s American renaissance.

Based on the first 30 minutes of "Phone Booth" I would say it was dismissed quite fairly.  Loved "Decade" tho.  :yabbse-thumbup:

Traffic was definitely the first one that came to my mind, although I guess he gets off the hook because of the Coen Bros. but yeah, Soderbergh lol. no further comment
