Critic Reviews for New York in the Fifties
It doesn't present a very thorough vicarious experience of the New York scene, but it does present conversations with some of the period's most interesting people.
A likeable documentary that strives to tie up a number of cultural themes and make sense of a very disparate group of 1950s social and artistic innovators, and even a few phonies.
Audience Reviews for New York in the Fifties
This documentary is what it says it is, but from the subjective viewpoint of author Dan Wakefield, and it's mostly about a few writers around at the time, and some musicians. There's good footage of iconic people involved in the pre sixties beat vibe, cool commentary from Robert Redford explaining the cultural scene in New York in the fifties.
