Q&A with De Niro, DiCaprio and Gladstone
could easily shave off an hour..
epitome of the idea that the ‘60s and ‘70s were about liberation, rather than today’s fight for equality. would never be done today!! radical in its naked joy at its white villains’ plight, staging the story as a flashback from a rousing funeral for the racist Ol Cap’n.
so much fun and the music feels lively and contemporary. everyone feels like a real person (knows what sex is; has experienced anger). the staging of “First Thing Monday Mornin’” is ridiculously powerful.
