HANDLE WITH CARE
Demme | 1977 | US | 98m
MELVIN AND HOWARD
Demme | 1980 | US | 95m
*Q&A w/ Demme and
actor Paul Le Mat
“50 Years of NYFF”
6:00* at FSLC

Handle With Care was too good for its own good: audiences weren’t expecting humor of this degree of piquancy and charm. Demme is satirical but never cruel, and sweet but never syrupy: this film marked the emergence of one of the most appealing directorial personalities of the New Hollywood.”
Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

 
“Demme has entered into the soul of American blue-collar suckerdom and brought us close enough to see that the people on the screen are us. Melvin and Howard has the same beautiful dippy warmth of its characters; it’s what might have happened if Jean Renoir had directed a comedy script by Preston Sturges. ”
Pauline Kael, The New Yorker [Read More]
