Movie Reviews

Memories of a legendary playland
Big John | New Jersey,USA | 12/21/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"
I saw the film at the Coney Island Film Festival and feel it could become a cult classic for those who visited the place in years past. I am aware that Coney Island will be closing forever soon and thought that ownership of the film will memorialize the fond memories people have of this legendary playland which includes the "Tales" of the sideshow that will be lost to future generations. It represents a culture of people that is little understood but which greatly impacted on the evolving entertainment media of today. I highly recomend it."

"
This is a documentary about a form of entertainment that is disappearing from America. American Carny brings back memories of the type of acts that I saw as a teenager at the NJ State Fair when I was growing up.
Todd Robbins is the foremost historian on the subject of Circus Sideshow acts, and is also an amazing performer.
The director Nick Basile and his crew did a great job on this film.

"This is my favorite DVD on the sideshow and I own many of them. My bookshelf is full of books on the subject and beyond a doubt this video covers all of the topics one would hope. Great movie!"
