Spring Night, Summer Night (1970)
Critic Reviews for Spring Night, Summer Night
Blending fervent quasi-documentary curiosity with expressive fury, Anderson-working with nonprofessional actors-embeds practical details of the town's history and struggles in the tense, myth-drenched drama of liberation and retribution.
The documentary-style portraits of the characters' impoverished neighbors display the influence of Italian neorealism, and the shadow-heavy photography at times evokes German expressionism.
The resurrection of an important piece of American independent cinema, a jagged, piercing look at small town life and the ruinous effects of economic depression that feels more relevant than ever.
'Spring Night, Summer Night' is, unlike most ordinary movies, a snapshot of what the American Dream really looks like.
