THE HEARTBREAK KID
May | 1972 | US | 106m
*Q&A w/ Charles Grodin and Jeannie Berlin
“Hollywood’s ‘Jew Wave’”
6:00* at FSLC

“Elaine May is one of the unsung geniuses of American comedy. She elicits a performance of heroic self-abasement from daughter Berlin – perhaps the ultimate portrait of female abjection in American cinema. But the film’s farcical premise, which might have devolved into creepy misogyny in a male directors hands, allows May to carry out a merciless dissection of masculine anxiety and fantasy. One of the most excruciating comedies ever made, it’s up there with any of Fassbinder’s sado-masochistic satires.”
Gavin Smith, Film Comment (Jan/Feb 2002) [Read More]
