  • José Neves's rating of the film Rich Man, Poor Man

    Filming on the streets with the techniques and the technology introduced by television, releasing cinema from an academic weight and drawing with it a wider profusion of a cinematic discourse, was one the possible ways that television originated way back in 60s and 70s- being Lumet and Frankenheimer its exponents. This TV series was that construction in the opposite direction: from cinema back to television.
