Why is The MUSIC of The 21st CENTURY So HORRIBLE ? It's Sad! THANK GOD We Have MUSIC From The 50s 60s & 70s and Don't Have to Listen to KANYE or CRAP RAP or Any Other GARBAGE Made These Days. There's GREAT MUSIC Right Here!
Two losers at the very bottom rung of the American Dream have only their tenuous friendship to sustain them. Schlesinger as an Englishman and an outsider is not too impressed with America or Americans and delivers an honest and scathing denouement, but neither are we impressed with the hallucinatory flash with which he tells his tale. What remains, what sticks, is the acting of the two leads who fully invest in the characters frailties whose weaknesses amazingly leads to empathy rather than disgust.
Hoffman and Voight are fantastic in delivering this story of life on the streets in a New York that doesn't quite have the same bite. These are individuals doomed to failure but we can't help but watch.
More than the grime and the weirdos, more than "Everybody's Talkin'" and "I'm walkin' here!," what echoes through the decades is its poignant depiction of an unlikely, contentious, and yet weirdly tender friendship forged on the margins of society. It's one of the 70s (made 1969) great classic films. See it.
Sinatra: The Main Event was an ABC musical television special starring Frank Sinatrabroadcast on October 13, 1974. The special documents a concert given by Sinatra at Madison Square Garden in New York City, in which Sinatra is accompanied by the Woody Herman band, and introduced by Howard Cosell.
The concert that was broadcast, was the last of a series of six that Sinatra gave at Madison Square Garden in October 1974, the audio from the concerts had also been taped and the highlights would be released as The Main Event – Live. The saxophonist Jerry Doidgson who performed on the concerts felt that the televised performance wasn't as strong as the others as Sinatra's natural pacing of the concert was disrupted by the mechanisms of television production.
