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.
The picture's greatest strength rests in its characters.
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.
An affectionate and funny 50s autobiographical memoir.
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.
