Electra Glide in Blue

One of the very best things I've seen in this year's festival is the film Electra Glide in Blue, part of the retrospective of early 1970s lost classics. It's unbelievable that this movie is not more well-known, because the acting by Robert Blake is perfect, the cinematography by Conrad Hall is breath-taking, and the screenplay is just beautiful, striking the perfect balance of humor, drama and majesty. It feels very contemporary too, like something the Coen Brothers might achieve at their best. This was a one-off by director James Guercio and it's a shame that he didn't pursue film-making. I feel very lucky to have caught this one on the big screen.
