Miloš Forman United States, 1971

Wee Hunk's rating of the film Taking Off

This was the generation gap defined by hair. I thought the intercuts with the auditions were brilliant. While the pot smoking scene seems timeless, the poker game drunkenness seemed over the top. Drunks being funny stopped being funny after 'Arthur' (1981), and maybe a bit earlier than that.
