Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Harry Smith at the Breslin Hotel

Of some historical interest, but not much. Beats didn't have dental plans, or financial safety nets, but we kinda all knew that. Better to watch Harry Smith's films, listen to his field recordings, view his art, read his books or visit his archives. He wasn't really prepared for our age of celebrity voyeurism, not even in Robert Frank's verité style.
