Bona Fide [VHS]

This mosaic comedy-drama tells the story of a La Ronde-like circle of romantic adventures and failed affairs centered around a songwriter named Carroll Barber (Keith Carradine) and his father Carl Barber (Denver Pyle). There is a trail of Carroll’s past relationship spread throughout the city of Los Angeles. Barber is an aloof womanizer who cannot commit to any relationship, and is used to illustrate the loneliness of Los Angeles big-city life. Among the women in his life are Ann Goode (Sally Kellerman), a lonely real estate agent, Karen Hood (Geraldine Chaplin), a Valley housewife addicted to taxi rides, Linda Murray (Sissy Spacek), a woman prone to vacuuming in the nude and Nona Bruce (Lauren Hutton), the snapshot-taking mistress of a wealthy man

    A wonderful tribute to one of the world’s most underrated but most familiar cities. You know it even if you have not been there. I would wager that more films are set in LA than any other city on the planet. Its combination of tall palm trees, hills and mountains, beaches and stylish skycrapers make it visually truly stunning. But enough of the travelogue! The film has a wonderful atmospheric quality – very 1970s (in a good way) – and the actors never put a foot wrong. I love French films and there is something Gallic about the direction. Another French connection is Geraldine Chaplin, who numbers a couple of films from that country in her distinguished career.

    I won’t tell you any more or I might spoil things, just go and buy this today on DVD – and enjoy!!! OR MAYBE NOT. ONE LITTLE PROBLEM – YOU CAN’T BUY IT ON DVD BECAUSE IT IS UNAVAILABLE. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THIS MOVIE RE-RELEASED, PLEASE MARK THIS REVIEW AS “HELPFUL”.
