You’re not allowed to call yourself a ‘movie buff’, of course, if you don’t think Peter Bogdanovich’s meditative study of post-war small-town coming of age is one of the best films ever made, so it’s just as well we don’t. It’s still pretty good, though, mainly down to an excellent non-star cast (Bottoms, Bridges, Burstyn, Leachman, Shephard, the venerable Ben Johnson et al), some excellent b&w photography and, well, we’re just as sentimental as the next feller when it comes to old times. See you in a year or two, if we don’t get shot.
