TAKING OFF & PUZZLE OF A DOWNFALL CHILD

TAKING OFF

(1971, Milos Forman) In desperate search for their runaway daughter through East Village hippie enclaves, Buck Henry and Lynn Carlin resort to the ultimate — trying marijuana themselves. Approx. 93 min. 35mm.
3:00, 6:50

“Wackier and more expansive than Forman’s previous films.”
– J. Hoberman

 

"Milos Forman's first American film is still the most graceful and well-proportioned work he's done here, an engaging, episodic, wonderfully fair-minded satire about runaway children and anxious adults.”
– Dave Kehr

"Remains Forman’s best film in and about America.”
– Vadim Rizov, Village Voice

“A delightfully touching comedy...its gentle wit has aged far more gracefully than the hectoring sermons of most youth movies churned out in the late '60s and early '70s.”
Time Out (London)
