The Party

Saw P. Sellers/Bl. Edwards’ #TheParty. Sellers isn’t doing a mere faux-Indian pastiche here. The detail & thoroughness are quite astonishing …

… Even more striking is how exactly & adeptly he mimics the methods of Stan Laurel. The same goes with director Edwards, …

… channeling the work of Jacques Tati, and specifically the long restaurant conclusion of Playtime.

#TheParty. Set/decorations are effective, really fun. And kids, some of the most enjoyably crazy, time-capsuled costumes in film history!

#TheParty. Also, Claudine Longet is so delicate & winsome that she just pretty well dries up and blows away.
