Movie Reviews

A Radical Film-Makers' Extrordinary Legacy
Jimmy James | Canada | 02/07/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was first introduced to de Antonio's films in the early '90s, when I was lucky enough to catch "Milhouse: A White Comedy," on CBC television's The Passionate Eye.

My next encounter with de Antonio was his 1964 film, "Point Of Order," which just bowled me over.

Thus began my search for virtually every film de Antonio made. This remarkable collection of four de Antonio films gets you almost half the way there. Included in this set are: (1) Millhouse: A White Comedy (1971); (2) The Year Of The Pig (1968); (3) Underground (1976); and, (4) Hoover And I (1989). In my opinion, de Antonio's true gift was his ability to tell a compelling story through great film editing.

If you're a fan of left-of-center political documentaries, I cannot recommend this collection too highly.
