| A solid documentary of mid-20th century America
At 47 minutes, this black & white film is a dream length and somewhat impressionistic record of the thoughts and memories of several centenarians. These 100+ year old people explain themselves through anecdotal reminiscence, their reveries edited with a fast cut visual avalanche of 1971 Los Angeles in its then-contemporary reality and as it then played out on television. As one who lived in LA in 1971, and now, at age 67, beginning to experience my own disengagement from an evolving popular culture, I found this short film to be a great entertainment.

It's available, as a supplement, on Criterion's "The Black Stallion."
