Sinopsis

This movie tells the possibly true story of Melvin E. Dummar. Melvin is a nice guy, but he is a total loser: unlucky, impractical and can’t keep a job. One night, however, he helps an old man who has had a motorcycle accident in the desert. Melvin laughs when the old man says he is Howard Hughes.

Even here, Demme’s capacity for warmth is unmistakable.

The greatest strength of Melvin and Howard is that despite the tragedy of Melvin Dummar’s almost-riches, the film sustains a warm, doughy quality that casts these unfortunate prisoners of America’s ruthless capitalism as sympathetic through their imagination. The grass may not actually be greener on the other side, but in Demme’s America, one doesn’t need to feel ashamed for imagining what it might be like after all.

Recalling a recent viewing of RICKI AND THE FLASH and watching MELVIN AND HOWARD for the first time in over a decade, it’s clear to me now that Demme had his finger on the pulse of American life in an unparalleled way, transcending the idea of Hollywood cinema and almost single-handedly embracing a distinctly American cinema, one whose narrative and technical nuances reflect spacious skies, amber waves of grain, and purple mountain majesties, all above fruited—albeit littered—plain.
