“NYFF50: Masterworks”
6:00 at FSLC

“It’s disheartening when an ace like Nothing but a Man gets lost in the shuffle. After a standing ovation at the New York Film Festival and two prizes at Venice, this 1964 movie about black self assertion–written by two white filmmakers–was passed over by every major studio [before] sinking into oblivion… Photographed evocatively by Young, Nothing has a documentary-like sureness. The most melodramatic situations–racist teenagers catching Duff and Josie in a car at night, a carload of good old boys confronting Duff at a gas station–are subtly etched, unhysterical affairs. Yet they don’t lack for powerful, dramatic tension.”
Desson Howe, The Washington Post
