film 3 of 4


Tweet Review by Dean Duncan May 8, 2015 @deanduncan63

Saw #Rocky. Mean Streets, for kids!

#Rocky. Loved the 1st hour. Decent impulses, hard pressed by heredity and environment. Very well-observed, & very sweet. …

… From the cracking of those raw eggs, though, it’s another, lesser film.

#Rocky. Montages showing their age! Fairy tales need happy endings though, don’t they? I’ve read Zola & Norris, & I’m grateful …

… But I’ve also got plenty of time, plenty of room for this.

#Rocky. Watch it. But you want some real American naturalism on the subject of boxing? (Yes, you do.) John Huston’s Fat City!
