Movie Info

An aspiring actor leaves his home in Brooklyn for adulthood in Manhattan in Paul Mazursky's loosely autobiographical comedy-drama. In 1953, would-be thesp Larry Lapinsky (Lenny Baker) flees his hysterically clinging mother (Shelley Winters) for a $25-a-month (!!) apartment in bohemian Greenwich Village. Between Method-like acting classes, a movie audition (where he meets a posturing actor played by Jeff Goldblum), and work at a juice bar, Larry hangs out with a circle of archetypal Village

Next Stop, Greenwich Village is a very beautiful motion picture.

A middlebrow American Graffiti, minus the music and set in Greenwich Village, 1953.

"Next Stop, Greenwich Village" isn't aggressively awful. It is inept but mostly it's just commonplace.

The movie's part autobiography and part fiction, but it's all of a piece because Mazursky captures the tone of the 1950s.

Seems more like a slavish hommage to Federico Fellini than a genuine reminiscence.

Charming, bittersweet coming-of-age nostalgia

An ingratiating puppy dog of a film by Paul Mazursky about a young man seeking independence in a place synonymous with freedom

So quotable about thumbs, way back in 1976.

Audience Reviews for Next Stop, Greenwich Village

A semi-autobiographical account of a period in director Paul Mazursky's life. A funny and at times quite poignant telling of Mazursky's choice to leave Brooklyn for what he sees as the glamorous world of Greenwhich Village in 1953.
He is pursuing an acting career and becomes part of a vibrant circle of friends, a very eclectic group; a blunt but kindhearted woman, a playboy (Christopher Walken,) an over-the-top funny black gay man (whose buoyant exterior hides a lot of pain,) a suicidal older actress, and the protagonist's girlfriend, who seems ever-indifferent to her lover.
His parents provide much comedy, especially his overbearing mother, brilliantly played by Shelley Winters.
It is obvious that Paul Mazursky has quite a love for these people as his story moves away from himself and focuses on these loveable, fascinating characters.
Lenny Baker, who plays the lead, is very well-suited for the role.
