Jerry Schatzberg United States, 1973

Jenny Coldpussy's rating of the film Scarecrow

We don't see movies like this anymore and I think it's because these wild, problematic misfits that make such great characters in a film wouldn't stand a chance in 21st century America. Someone like Max wouldn't have been able to get out of the prison system and if he did, he would already be dead from a heroin overdose. Another reason to love 1970s New Hollywood.
