If you haven’t seen Breaking Away after watching this trailer you will. Buy or rent Breaking Away on YouTube. It’s a film you might want too own. I feel great every-time I watch this one.
I feel Breaking Away stands alone in the Cycling-Cinema Genre. Next, Bicycle Thieves, this Vittorio De Sica 1948 post world classic spins a father and son’s tale tracking down a stolen bike. It’s gem and a great wat to brush up on your Italian. Bicycle Thieves, is a weighty film in the Italian Neo-realist film movement and just one of the genres and Vittorio De Sica’s many stunning films.
As for other films from the past. Marathon Man, Nazi’s, Diamonds, A Dentists and A Runner. Laurence Olivier and Dustin Hoffman star in a THRILLER you will watch again if you dare.
Stunning cinematography just one of this films highlights, Where The Rivers Flow North, shot in Vermont’s Northern Kingdom, a cedar-oil farmer VS an electric dam claiming eminent-domain over his family land. Rip Torn, Michael J. Fox with Tantoo Cardinal, all proffer classic interpretations in once in a life-time roles. Rip Torn stands alone with his mammoth portrayal of Noel Lord.
Can’t forget this one. Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, another classical story of Man and Bicycle.
Boy And Bicycle 1965 Ridley Scott, yes Blade Runner Ridley Scott. This is his first films.
A teenage boy skips school, spends the day riding through town and a deserted beach on his bicycle, his mind wanders imagining he is the only person in the world.
Hope you enjoy these for the first time, second or third and so on.
