David Chase Estados Unidos, 2012

Ari's rating of the film Not Fade Away

So Chase, a master of long-form TV narrative form, clearly has no clue how to pace a feature film. This film is jarringly awkward - abruptly cutting through time & between scenes with little logic or flow. Yet it still manages to be engaging through its strong characterizations, performances, & well-written individual scenes. If it's heavy on boomer nostalgia, it at least resists banal coming-of-age tropes.
